… should become another turning point 🧭 in my “nautical life”. After a successful Vendée Globe ⛵🌍 roadshow 🎥🎙 start in Vienna I started touring through the provinces. During one of my events, I met the owner of an Austrian fibre production company who happily announced that he has developed a new type of stone fibre 🌋🪨. “Great, super,” I answered “then let’s build a yacht ⛵ out of it.” “Yes, that’s what we should do!” was his replay. 😊
Just a few days later the parcel service 📦 delivered the first fibre roll and we immediately started laboratory work to test the use of this fibre for nautical applications.
Project FIPOFIX was born.
