Race with a Difference

February 22 saw the official launch of Earthrace, a 100% biodiesel fuelled boat aiming to set a new world record for circumnavigating the globe.

The global circumnavigation attempt is scheduled to begin in either September 2006 or March 2007 (depending on the weather) from Barbados.
