Check out ‘Plastiki’ at – http://www.theplastiki.com/lo-fi/ – It’s a catamaran built from recycled plastic drink bottles and set to sail from the USA to Sydney.
I remember going to see the Kon-tiki when I was very young so when I saw the name Plastiki in an ABC article I had to read further. Plastic Boats aren’t new – I sailed a little thing called a Topper in the Lake District in the UK – but plastic boats built to do journeys of this scale?? Sounds like one hell of an adventure!
Looks like I’ll be following them as well as Jessica Watson... And that makes me a sailing tragic dreaming of my own adventures..
