DAY 8 - TRANSATLANTIC ATTEMPT 23rd JUNE 2021
8th DAY 23rd JUNE 2021 - The last recorded data is shown as 22nd June 2021. The difference being from yesterday that the trimaran appears to be heading back to Plymouth. If that is so, we hope the Mayflower is safe and may soon (don't rush things) be able to embark on a new mission.
MAYFLOWER PILGRIMS VOYAGE - MAS's direction of travel is the reverse of the Scout and Voyager autonomous Atlantic attempts that took advantage of trade winds. The Mayflower will be heading into prevailing winds. If sail powered, she would need to tack. But powered by a diesel engine, there is no need for that. Energy from nature is used to power the onboard AI and satellite communications. Any surplus could aid propulsion.
We will be reporting the facts with our own observations. You can find out more about progress on the official websites (urls below).
