  1. […] steering and boost in propulsion from the wind, as they have a sail and can maneuver a little bit. Speeding along at the current 1.8 knots, it’s all relative. Enjoy your Sunday! *GB Posted by GoldBalloon @ 11:37 am :: […]

    Couldnt Agree more with Dr Bainbrige – it would at least be good if people who write for the press get the facts right. After all this is UK press Not USA press where everyone expects to get the wool pulled over their eyes and sensationalism is expected. Many of the people interested in the raft trip are interested in its design and interested in hearing details that are correct. The author must have read very ancient details about the raft as the logo is NOT on the sail. Anthony Smith might also like to get things straight such that the electronics are powered by solar panels AND a wind generator – the latter assuring that there is charging going on 24 hours a day and not affected by the shade of the sail. Couple this with the the horrendous faulty article in Yachting World and one could easily begin to distrust the press – heaven forbid!!! And UK press are up in arms about a Murdoch takeover!!!!!
