"Maewan adventure" is a sailboat going through the world during 4 years. Since 2015, Erwan is searching unexplored places, only accesible by the ocean. It's also an extrem sports platform, with scientifics research on human body and nature.
During thoses 20 past years around the world, Erwan Le Lann had the chance to meet best climbers, skiers and sailors of the world. Thoses meeting became strong friendship, based on a same passion for Life, Nature, sport and adventure.
Proposing this 4 years project, Erwan wants to sail far... far away, up to the North, but also up to the South..... To let himself being guide by nature, avoid passing by articial passage as Panama canal......Most of all, going trhough the wild, the deepest polar region, searching for the most extreme conditions.
Finally, it's a 4 years all around the world trip, going to places where nobody land a foot before!
The crew will change depending projects; every one is on top of his discipline, known and internationally recognized. Their passion for exploration will lead them through virgin slopes, inviolate summits, unknown seas...
During this time, Maewan became ambassador for the ONG Plankton Planet (www.planktonplanet.org); so we'll take time to collect plankton into those ocean not so many frequented, into North West passage, between Groenland and Kamchatka peninsula, so they will be examined by searchers and international scientifics.
As project is also to test human, we will be submited to studies, to compare stres effects and tiredness in extrem conditions, so they will identify some similary factors.
For sure, Strong emotions!!
Goal is multiple: Meet, Listen, Learn, Share
> Meet Inuit people: share with them, ask them about the world, how they see it, how they see future, lear how they live, and what about strong and intensive fishing, melting ice, etc....
> Physical and sportive challenge: idea is to kitesurf into Bering Strait; it means that depending where we will be, i will change day and at the same time country.... what a symbol!!
> watch and understand: intensive fishing, economic and ecologic issues..... To really see and understand impact on those lands how industial fishing destroy places, as they now pass by North West passage. Which consequences for Nature?....
