The number of technological and sailing projects our Captain and CEO Diego de Miguel is enrolled in continues to attract the interest of the media.
Sailing Living Lab returns to gather the interest of Itsas Tantak, the weekly radio program that Edu Araujo directs on Onda Vasca.
This time Edu interviews Celia González, maritime archaeologist and Paula Gonzalvo, head of the blog Allende los Mares, both collaborators of Diego de Miguel, CEO of Sailing Living Lab and captain of Acrobat in the project of the I Astronomical Position Championship (CAP).
Celia, advisor only now, expects her studies let her enroll in the Acrobat, as Paula has enrolled to participate in a project based in her experience on board this summer.
This pioneering initiative consists in a journey from Cádiz to Lanzarote in which the participating boats, which will sail in a flotilla, will make three daily measurements of their position using traditional means, such as the sextant, which the Acrobat will compare with the position measured with the technological methods with keeping track of every margin of error throughout the five days that the trip is scheduled to last.
Onda Algeciras TV
José Manuel Sánchez Bautista, host of “La Esquina” on Onda Algeciras TV, took Diego de Miguel on his set to learn more about the technological aspect of the Sailing Living Lab project, which led him to participate in the II International Meeting of Researchers of the Technological Campus of Algeciras.
Diego explains during the interview his experience with the children he had on board (and in every corner) of the Acrobat, to whom he showed the operation of the ship and the technological projects that he transports during his trips. He brought some of those devices with him to the interview to show them to the audience.
Remember you can learn from those projects on our site.
