CalypSol Solar Trimaran
The CalypSol trimaran is a high-tech solar powered eco-friendly boat built to promote the use of renewable sources of energy and advocate a clean environment. On June 11, 2014, the CalypSol crew reached Baton Rouge, LA , thus completing 1"??450 miles from Chicago, IL to successfully become the first solar powered canoe voyage down the Mississippi. The voyage took Raymond Christe and Jean-Claude Barras.Torrential rains forced the determined navigators to weather out the storms ashore in Helena, AR. This gave them a chance to talk with the very hospitable and friendly local folk and to be interviewed on the Radio Show of legendary Sonny Payne [KFFA AM 1360].
