 Environment   Mooloolaba AUS  'Plastiki' pit stops to get ready for Sydney
‘Plastiki,’ David de Rothschild’s plastic bottle catamaran, is on schedule to reach their final destination of Sydney by July 25. Boat and crew will be moored in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Originally they wanted to pit stop at Coffs Harbour and rendezvous with a pre-arranged charter escort vessel. But due to the “unpredictable nature of ‘Plastiki’s’ sailing capabilities and the prevailing weather conditions,” as a press release put it, the crew opted to get the escort vessel sooner to avoid being set north of their intended staging destination of Coffs Harbor. The 13 meter AVCG vessel, ‘The Mooloolaba Rescue’ rendezvoused with the ‘Plastiki’ on Sunday afternoon and is now in Mooloolaba. Read the phone log from a call by the Man, David de Rothschild, himself.
