The four Earthrace crew members, who are from New Zealand, are docking in 30 cities. They've already been to New Zealand, Samoa, Vancouver, Hawaii, Seattle and San Francisco and they're headed through the Panama Canal, up the East Coast, then through the St. Lawrence Seaway into the Great Lakes, and down the Mississippi into New Orleans.
In March 2007, the crew will race the Earthrace powerboat in an international competition to circumnavigate the globe at about 24,000 nautical miles, starting in Barbados. Earthrace, which will be the first official boat in the competition to be powered by biodiesel, aims to break the world record of 75 days.
