Greenpeace sails into new waters

Greenpeace launches new vessel

Greenpeace, the environmental campaign group, launched a new ship that it hopes will play a big role in its future campaigns.

The Rainbow Warrior III carries the name of another vessel that was bombed and sunk by the French secret service in 1985 after it attempted to disrupt France’s nuclear testing in the South Pacific.

Built to rigorous specifications for safety and environmental friendliness, the new vessel is almost 60m long, can hit 14 knots using sailpower, makes its own water, and can stay at sea for months.
