Snoopy Found Unharmed!

For those who do not know about Snoopy, this is a small robotic boat controlled by Robin Lovelock who regularly tests his craft on Bray Lake. After another Trans Atlantic attempt in March of this year when the intrepid Snoopy was launched from Weymouth and following a storm, the boat stopped transmitting a signal.  But after several days of searching, Snoopy was found safe and well when it landed on Brighton Beach!  You can read more about the adventures of Snoopy and Robin's GPS tracking at http://www.gpss.co.uk/asontv.htm
