Maybe it's because I just saw the movie The Life of Pi, or maybe it's because I sailed as a kid- but I think this needs to be a bigger story. Today, November 27th (the day of my birth, but keep that on the down-low as no one at the office is aware of it) a miniature boat was launched in hopes of being the first unmanned craft to (intentionally) cross the Atlantic. Robin Lovelock is a retired NATO scientist and the creator of this project. He believes the vessel will have to navigate 6,000 miles via GPS to make it from the coastal village Barton on Sea, England.
For my business partners who visit these pages... OK - I confess! I DO spend much of my time on this hobby project :-)
I guess maybe because I am a hobbyist at heart, and I love seeing other's passions - but I think this is great. Keep it up Mr. Lovelock!
