Sailing the Atlantic -- With Sun Power

Solar-powered boat crosses the Atlantic Ocean from Spain to New York City.

california precipitation landscape and solar solutions MAY 9, 2007 -- "Crossing the Atlantic" seems a feat and tradition half a world away from us in California...but our long coastline makes this crossing pertinent.

Sun power has reached the long-distance ocean trek. It took five months...but a Swiss-built solar vessel (catamaran with a solar paneled roof) has completed the first 7,000 mile journey across the Atlantic from Chipiona, Spain to New York City.

The 46-foot boat produced 2,000 kilowatt hours of solar energy during its voyage and "not one drop of oil" was used.

New York was the destination of the voyage so the crew could share their feat at the first annual World Clean Energy Awards sponsored by three Swiss groups. These awards recognize innovation in action and Sun21 is a shining example of an innovative clean energy application in practice.

What's that out there on the horizon? A bird, a boat...a solar powered ship!
