The sun21 completes the first transatlantic crossing with a solar powered boat
sun21, the solar powered catamaran developed and sponsored by the Swiss transatlantic21 Association made its historic arrival into New York’s North Cove Marina at 3:00pm today. On this beautiful day the "sun21" crew was happy to have reached their final destination safely.
"sun21" serves as the shining example of clean energy applications in practice. Michel Thonney, skipper of the "sun21" put it like this: "I don't particularly like speeches but I would like to shout out to the world - use solar energy!"
