Earthrace Is On

Kiwi Peter Bethune is now part way through a 30-city world tour aboard Earthrace, his unique biodiesel-fuelled powerboat. Since leaving NZ, Earthrace has visited Samoa, Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, Hawaii and San Francisco on its mission to promote renewable fuels. The tour will finish up with an around-the-world powerboat race set for March 2007. Bethune is an oil exploration engineer turned environmentalist, with a keen interest in powerboats. His 78-foot trimaran was designed by Craig Loomis Design Group and built by Calibre Boats.
