Solar-powered boat sails around the world

Mission is an unprecedented attempt to circumnavigate the globe driven only by the sun's energy.

    For the first time ever, a crew is trying to sail around the world using only solar energy to power the ship.

    The project has been years in the making, and with just a few more months left to complete the journey, the vessel arrived in Doha.

    Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman went to meet the sailors onboard the world's largest solar ship.
