Thunberg “amazingly courageous”, says skipper of yacht taking her across Atlantic

Thunberg is taking a year off school to pursue her campaign to curb global warming in the Americas, which she will reach by sailboat on a transatlantic voyage.

She will travel from Britain to the United States, leaving in mid-August on the Malizia II, a racing boat fitted with solar panels and underwater turbines that produce electricity onboard, making the journey zero-carbon, a statement said.

"Greta taking on this challenge of sailing across on a race boat with zero comfort really shows her commitment to the cause and how far she's willing to push herself," Herrmann told Reuters.
