Earlier this month a catamaran made its way around the world and it made the trip using only solar power.
It’s the first time that’s ever been done! The record breaking circumnavigation took 19 months and featured pit stops in 28 different countries. The five man crew took advantage of each port of call to promote the importance of solar energy.
Expedition leader Raphael Domjan had this to say when disembarking in Monaco. “We are extremely happy to have achieved this first world tour with solar energy. We have shown that we have the technologies as well as the knowledge to become sustainable and safeguard our blue planet.”
