Lisa Laughlin and her SAIL class at Harbor View Elementary launched (via US Coast Guard) a 5-foot unmanned sailboat on May 10th, 2017.

 The boat spent 154 days and 12 hours at sea and made landfall in County Mayo, Ireland, near Ballycroy.  The vessel was taken to Drumgallagh National School in Ballycroy and the students were extremely excited to discover and examine the contents of the waterproof compartment.  Inside was a painting of the Charleston flag, a keyring, some coins, and some handwritten notes from the SAIL students.  The boat is currently on display in Drumgallagh National School.
