Adventure on biofuel

Published: Saturday 31 May 2008

DownToEarthEarthrace, a 78-feet trimaran, set off on a voyage from Sagunto in Spain on April 27 to circumnavigate the globe on biodiesel. By March 8, it covered 4,200 nautical miles (7,778.4 km) and reached Puerto Rico where it refuelled, fixed the toilet and repaired an inspection hatch on the fuel tank. This is the second attempt by the team to circumnavigate the globe.
