Pieter Adriaans' Book 'Robot op Zee' published

Pieter Adriaans' pursuit of realising the ultimate schoolboy's dream whilst at the same time accomplishing a scientific project of outstanding caliber, has led him to bravely cross the Atlantic Ocean as a solo sailer. Aided by nothing but his determination and advanced computersystem of own build, he entered the 2000 STAR challenge to sail off from Plymouth. The finish at Newport he'll never make...It's an almost literal version of Plato's doomed syracuse.
