Ivan's position at on is:

Ivan Dimov

TRAVELLING AROUND THE WORLD ALONE TO SAVE SEAS FROM PLASTIC POLLUTION

Together with his little 5,90 meters boat called Minnie, Ivan is embarking on a feat that has never been accomplished before in a boat of these kind of dimensions: a solitary travel around the world.
Moreover, the skipper has a very important assignment: he will recover all the plastic waste he finds during his travels.
Rubbish bins will be contained in a specific net, that will be tied to an international signaling device which, after reaching a determined quantity, will be let off into the ocean.
Thanks to this method, the boats that will recover will be able to read a message enclosed which explains the main objective of this mission: if all mankind used this method, we could recover a large quantity of plastic that is killing our planet.
The skipper will recover all the plastic waste he finds during his travels.

Moreover, Ivan’s journey is a project in the long term that involves also the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics of Trieste (OGS).  OGS will analyze plastic and water samples that the skipper will recover during his lonely travel. He will follow the traditional circumnavigation course of the three Capes, raising anchor from north Europe to Cape of good hope, in South Africa, across the Atlantic ocean. He will pass through the Indian ocean until Cape Leewin, in Australia, overshooting New Zealand and the Pacific ocean to reach Cape Horn in South America and finally returning to the first point across the Atlantic ocean.

Tappa 2

Capo di Buona Speranza

Sudafrica
It represents the extremity of peninsula of the Cape, that is considered the most southern point of Africa. It is called also Cape of Tempests. Cape of Good Hope has always been a symbolic place, a real finis terrea thanks to the force of its sea. A great challenge!
Tappa 3

Capo Leeuwin

Australia occidentale
It is considered the point of connection between Indian Ocean and Antarctic Glacial Ocean and the most southern – western extremity of Australia. It is the second cape of the 3 Great Capes. Cape Leeuwin indicates the entrance to Pacific Ocean.
Tappa 4

Capo Horn

Cile
It is placed in the archipelago of the Land of Fire and it is commonly showed as the most southern point of South America. It is one of the most unwelcoming places of our planet. As is known it has bad weather conditions and, for this reason, navigation is very difficult with sail boats.
