IWC’s Plastiki Expedition Comes to an End

Arrival in Sydney

The Plastiki and crew have reached the end of their epic voyage which has taken them through the Pacific Ocean on an 8,000 nautical mile adventure lasting over 130 days!

The team arrived at Sydney’s Australian National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour to an excited crowd of friends, family and supporters.

The Plastiki cabin has been home to 10 members of crew over the 4 month journey; Skipper Jo Royle, Co-Skipper David Thomson, Expedition leader David de Rothschild, Olav Heyerdahl, Graham Hill, Luca Babini, Matthew Grey, Max Jourdan, Singeli Agnew and Vern Moen. All of whom have witnessed the polluted waters of the Pacific, affirming their mission to share their experience with the watching world and most importantly highlight solutions to protect our oceans and beat waste.

On their wrist throughout the voyage was the IWC Ingenieur Automatic Mission Earth.
