Filming with the BBC and MOOP Launched

At approximately 15:30 today we launched the MOOP from a point about 5 nautical miles West of Aberystwyth. We aimed her east towards Ynyslas beach, north of Aberystwyth in the hope that we might recover her easily in a day or so. If we do it will be a good sign that the simple controller works at sea, at least over short distances. We might then try for a longer journey out across the Irish sea. We’ve already had a few messages from the SPOT tracker and its looking like the boat is on course for coming back to the beach.

MOOP all ready to go.

We also had our larger boat BeagleB out for the BBC to film her as part of their Coast TV program.
