#Unmanned - School children in South Carolina in the USA are awaiting news on the whereabouts of their unmanned sailboat that made landfall in Ireland's North West this past week.
As WCSC Live 5 News reports, the miniature vessel named Cruiser was believed to be on its way to a school in Bangor Erris after reaching the Co Mayo mainland near Achill Island on Wednesday (11 October), some five months after it was launched by students at Harbor View Elementary in Charleston.
If you have any information as to Cruiser’s current whereabouts, you can get in touch with the school HERE.
The news comes six months after the miniature unmanned yacht Lancer was returned to the ocean after sailing from the north east US to Connemara — and bringing together the Connecticut high schooler behind the marine science project with the Galway girl who found the boat near her home.
In July, Lancer was tracked on a return course to Ireland. The boat finally made landfall near Plymouth in Devon last month, but its current whereabouts are unknown.
