was looking for alternative fuel sources for an upcoming boat project and found this ... earthrace.

what is earthrace

The goal of Earthrace is to set a new world record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe, running 100% renewable biodiesel fuel, and with a net zero carbon footprint. The amazing Earthrace boat will make the attempt, starting late March, 2008, from Sagunto in Spain. Earthrace is also undertaking a two year promotional tour, visiting 100 great cities around the globe, where the crew meet local people, talk about their experiences, and most of all connect with people about the need to get renewable fuels into our energy mix.

the world's coolest boat!

Earthrace is a 24m (78ft) tri-hull wavepiercer that has been designed and built specifically to get the record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe. She is an advanced endurance vessel, capable of submarining up to 7m (23ft) underwater as she powers across oceans. One journalist recently reported "Earthrace is like a rally car but for oceans, with her ability to handle rough seas and storm conditions at high speed."
