At about 17:00 Moscow Sunday, March 3, co-founder of the Agency design yachts Nuvolari Lenard Dan Lenard (Lenard Dan) has completed its “environmentally friendly” a single transatlantic voyage on a ten-meter sailing boat Vela 33 Scia. Designer finished in the American city of Fort Lauderdale on the 41st day after the start of the Spanish port of El Puerto de Santa Maria (near Cadiz).
Leonard started on January 20. He was going to cross the Atlantic in less than a month to have time to finish during the Miami International Boat Show between 14 and 18 February, but the two-week calm in the ocean did not allow him to do so and was forced to make a pit stop in Antiguato resupply.
The main purpose of the journey of Leonard was to draw attention to the problem of ocean pollution. To make your journey as clean as possible, the designer abandoned the use of engines, generators and any equipment and electronics including GPS and radio. Up to the arrival at Antigua, Leonard did not use even a compass. The exception in his experiment, he, apparently, did just for your smartphone: when the designer crossed the Atlantic in a group in Facebook dedicated to the project, began to receive photos and video from the Board of Scia. His voyage Leonard wanted to show that in the XXI century it is possible to walk on the sea as people did in ancient times without causing harm to the environment.
Now the boat of Leonard will return to his homeland in Italy. There it will give environmental organizations. It is expected that Scia will walk around Sardinia and Italy.
