Climate activist Greta Thunberg has set sail from Plymouth on what could be her most daunting challenge yet – crossing the Atlantic in a solar-powered racing yacht. ‘I feel a bit seasick and it’s not going to be comfortable but that I can live with,’ said the 16-year-old climate activist ahead of her two-week voyage Thunberg is making her transatlantic trip on board the 60-foot yacht Malizia II to avoid travelling by air.
