Message in a Bottle from Ramsgate to the Chatham Islands
Fifty bottles containing messages were released into the sea near Ramsgate Maritime Museum, Kent. Their intended destination, The Chatham Islands in the South Pacific Ocean, is the nearest inhabited land to the precise location on the opposite side of the world to Ramsgate Maritime Museum.
Several of the bottles are being tracked using GPS technology and are programmed to send their longitude and latitude coordinates back to Ramsgate every hour.
