Earthrace – Powerboat to Circumnavigate the Globe (2.0)

Check out : EarthRace


latest news from http://www.EarthRace.Net

Sagunto, Spain, 27 June 2008, 13.24 GMT: Earthrace, the world’s fastest eco-boat, has smashed the world speed record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe, knocking almost 14 days off the previous record.

The boat crossed the finish line in Sagunto at 13.42 GMT on Friday 27 June,  having taken 60 days 23 hours and 49 minunutes to travel around 24,000 nautical miles fuelled by biodiesel to demonstrate the efficiency of, and draw global attention to, the potential for alternative fuel sources.

“This fantastic team of people and our astonishing boat have broken the record by a massive margin, said Pete Bethune, New Zealand skipper and owner of Earthrace,  “I finally feel that all the sacrifices made, especially by my wife and daughters, have been worth it.  I don’t even  know how to begin to thank all the individuals and companies that have supported us along the way, some of them since the very beginning over five years ago.  Without them, none of this would have been possible”.


The goal of Earthrace is to set a new world record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe, running 100% renewable biodiesel fuel, and with a net zero carbon footprint.  The amazing Earthrace boat will make the attempt starting from Sagunto in Spain. Earthrace is also undertaking a two year promotional tour, visiting 100 great cities around the globe. The crew meet local people, talk about their experiences, and most of all connect with people about the need to get renewable fuels into our energy mix and to inspire them to do something themselves to minimise their impact on the environment.

The Shack – Worth Reading

To borrow and paraphrase from the book, “It’s Complex in it’s simplicity”.  Excellent story of God, The Son and Holy Ghost as reveled to a tired and burdened father. It’s remarkable how the story is told. Regardless of  faith or belief , it’s worth reading.

Using add-ons in Firefox to enhance your experience is boring. For April Fools’ Day, lets make the experience a little more bizarre.

Since these add-ons were meant to be installed on a victim’s computer you’ll only need two things:

– a victim who uses Firefox as his or her regular browser
– access to the victim’s computer
