Mike Horn and The Pangaea’s Mission

Mike Horn and The Pangaea's Mission

The marks on a man’s watch tell a story but for Mike Horn, the scars on his Panerai only capture a glimpse of what he has experienced and accomplished in his life. Horn’s a World Explorer — he’s swam the entire length of the Amazon river with a broken knee, been to the North Pole in the winter and has been to parts of the World most can’t even fathom. He’s done it all while wearing a specially developed, triple cased Panerai, the PAM 92 Arktos.

Ben Clymer of Hodinkee and Sean Sullivan of The Impossible Cool were recently invited by the folks at Panerai to take a trip aboard the Pangaea which is manned by Horn and his two teammates. Nowadays, the world explorer is on a four year world tour on the 109 foot all-aluminum manual sail boat. The mission? To show “young explorers how they can help save the planet that Horn has seen from so many different angles.”

They Need Us | Nazish Memorial Fund

On August 17th, 2011, Nazish Noorani, a 27-year-old mother of two was shot and killed in her hometown of Boonton, NJ while walking with her husband and three-year old son after a dinner in observance of the Holy Month of Ramadan. After days of investigation, law enforcement officials have charged her husband with the killing of this young woman, with the help of an accomplice.
