True North, a Volvo Open 70 racing yacht that took part in the Round the World race in 2008-09, is coming to Bequia over New Year to promote Dubai as a candidate for the World Expo in 2020.
The yacht has been re-branded from its original ‘Green Dragon’ and is now sailing the world to help market and promote the World Expo.
