The video depicts a four month summer cruise across the North Atlantic to the Azores and then up to Newfoundland and Greenland. The crew visited interesting archeological sites from the Norse explorations and the early English and French settlements. The appearance of several hurricanes complicated the cruise but by and large the weather was good and little ice was encountered in northern waters.
The video is presented by the Green Ocean Race®, which is designed to show boats can cross an ocean and generate all the energy they need using wind and sunlight. It is symbolic of the era our planet is moving into.
