The quest continues…

A love of the sea is at the heart of every sailor. The nature gives us this outstanding opportunity to do what we love, but the changes we have seen in the oceans are not natural. Rather they are unnatural.

We’ve seen plastic bottles, styrofoam, plastic bags, Crocs, and balloons, pretty much everything including a garden table. Before every start, we have to reverse, just for checking debris from our keel and rudders. The pollution in our sea is pretty unreal and tragic.

Our project started in 2010 as X Sail Racing team. During the years we have seen regattas and crossed oceans.
