A team of robotics experts from the University of B-C is hoping to set a record by sending a sailboat across the Atlantic Ocean -- without anyone on board. Team co-captain, Karry Ocean, says they're preparing their 5.5-metre "Sailbot" for a voyage between Newfoundland and Ireland. (The team plans to launch the boat in August. Many robotic sailboats have been launched, but none have successfully completed the journey.)
