Robot Boat Sails into History by Finishing Atlantic Crossing
All summer, the small boat drifted steadily eastward. It drifted across the churning North Atlantic. It drifted until it neared the Irish coast. It made history. It became the first unmanned sailboat to cross the Atlantic.
It is called SB Met. It was built by Norwegian company Offshore Sensing AS. It reached the finish line of the Microtransat Challenge for robotic boats on Aug. 26. It finished two and a half months after setting off from Newfoundland. That's according to preliminary data.
