But anyway, I’ve just heard that “Plastiki”, the sailing boat made from 12,500 plastic PET bottles has arrived in Sydney.
Tonight, there’s a gala event where you can go hear all about it:
An evening with David de Rothschild: The Plastiki Expedition
Presented by the Sydney Institute of Marine Science
When: Wednesday 28 July 7pm – 9pm
Where: At the Sergeants Mess, Chowder Bay, Mosman (click here for Google Maps)
Tickets: $50 (Concessions $25) including drinks & canapes
Hear David de Rothschild, adventurer and environmentalist, talk about his momentous voyage across the Pacific on the 18 metre catamaran Plastiki made from 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles.
I can’t make it myself, as I am already busy this evening, but if anyone gets down there, I’d love to hear your reports…
I quite like the Plastiki diagrams, where they outline all the ins and outs of the boat and its processes:
