Earthrace Breaks Record 

Earthrace, the power boat trimaran, fueled entirely by biodiesel, has smashed the previous round-the-world record for a powerboat.

New Zealander, captain Pete Bethune and crew have arrived back at Vulkan Shipyard, Sagunto, Spain, just 60 days after departing on their circumnavigation record attempt, which takes 14 days of the previous record set 10 years ago. Earthrace has accomplished its remarkable feat running only on renewable biodiesel fuel, and leaving a net zero carbon footprint.
