World Marine Guide has followed the voyage of the world's largest solar-powered boat which has completed an Atlantic crossing to Miami and has now arrived in Cancun, Mexico before in time for the UN climate change conference. The Türanor left Monaco in September, and hopes to become the first solar-powered boat to complete a circumnavigation (via the Panama and Suez canals).
The 31 metre £16m catamaran stores energy in its batteries during the day and can run on the stored energy without sunlight for about three days at a speed of 7.5 knots. At slower speeds it could run for up to 15 days, although its maximum cruising speed is between eight and nine knots.

Mexican president Felipe Calderon announced plans for two new marinas in a huge new tourist development on the mainland side of the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
The new marinas on the Sinaloa mainland would provide recreational boaters with safer berthing, fuel, shelter from bad weather and shorter offshore passages between existing destinations.
The two new marinas will provide a total of 1,000 slips designed “in harmony with the Escalera Nautica marina model,” according to Fonatur, the federal agency tasked with developing tourism infrastructure. Fonatur completed nine other full-service marinas now operating under the Singlar banner, and most of them are currently for sale or have been sold to private investors.
Besides the two big tourist marinas, the plan calls for four golf courses, about 44,200 hotel rooms, a 5-mile beachfront walk and a light railway (an existing rail line runs from Hermosillo to Puerto Vallarta), plus a new airport. For locals and workers, at least 5,000 homes will be built, along with schools, hospitals and facilities needed for the community.
The project is described as twice the size of Cancun, the new beachfront development will initially cover 7.5 miles of Sinaloa coastline in an area about 80 miles south of Mazatlan. Stretching over 5,884 acres, the mega-resort will encompass the vast Laguna Agua Grande waterway and several canals, plus the seaside towns of Isla del Bosque and Teacapán at the border with Nayarit.

International marina developer IGY (Island Global Yachting) is withdrawing from Europe.
Its vice-president of marketing, Bert Fowles, explains: "IGY made a strategic decision in the wake of the global financial crisis to focus the bulk of its financial resources into the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America and Northeast USA. IGY has therefore disposed of its equity interests in Europe — including Mandalina Marina and Flisvos Marina in Greece. We may re-enter the European market as an investor should circumstances warrant."
IGY now operates in two distinct divisions with IGY Marinas covering the Americas, and Mourjan IGY Marinas (headquartered in Dubai) covering the Middle East, North Africa and South East Asia.
"We are approached regularly regarding European projects and will evaluate them for merit," continues Fowles. "Should the right project come our way — one that can truly compliment our Caribbean megayacht holdings — we would evaluate the merits of getting involved."
World Marine Guide could not find confirmation of this on the IGY web site.
