Thanks for visiting the Team-Joker fundraising page.  

We are building a small robot boat to cross the Atlantic  and powered by renewable energy  It has not been achieved before by a robotic craft 

We have excellent software written for us which monitors the boats position using GPS and steers the craft.  Hourly reports will be sent back and automatically plotted on a chart accessed over the internet.   You, as one of our  supporters can watch the progress of yacht 'Joker' as he moves westwards.

This is an unusual project and a fun way to give to Cancer Research.  Please search for 'Team-Joker' on your browser for further details.
