“Overwhelmed! Wow! Need to breathe. Wow! Wow! Wow!” tweeted Plastiki's crew as they approached the Sydney Harbor today.
Plastiki, a boat whose buoyancy relied on the 12,500 plastic bottles encased in its hull, successfully sailed from San Francisco to Sydney, Australia, in 128 days.
Carrying a crew of six intrepid explorers, the Plastiki set out on an epic and demanding mission described by the San Francisco chronicle as the “adventure of the century”.
