Plastic Bottles Yacht Sailed from San Francisco to Sydney

The Plastiki yacht, a 60-foot catamaran made mostly from recycled plastic, sail it from San Francisco to Sydney, Australia. The Plastiki is made from 12,500 PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles and sailed through the Heads, docking at Sydney's Darling Harbour where some curious Sydney- siders gathered to watch its arrival. The captain of the voyage, David de Rothschild, an heir to a banking dynasty, has sailed about 8,000 nautical miles from San Francisco to Sydney to make a point about the way plastic is used.
