New Island Is Born

August 2006, the yacht 'Maiken' is travelling in the south Pacific when they came across a weird sight... It was sand in the water, and floating ON TOP of the waves...

This is not a beach, it is volcanic stones floating on the water.

The trail left by the yacht...

And then this was spotted... ash and steam rising from the ocean...

And, while they were watching...

A brand new island formed...

Pretty wild, huh?

For full details visit the Maiken blog at Maiken Blog. You can follow the sailors adventures on this site.

Thanks DW (AKA Dad) for the story (And those sailors aboard the Maiken too for the happy snaps, what a buzz that would have been)

TODAY’S MUST FOR MOST ELITES…
Yachting or Luxury Boating whatever you may call it, is a Leisure Loved the World-over!.. Undoubtedly an Industrialist or even a small Business Magnet can decide to Own an average Yacht or Speed-boat, & the decision would Really be right if it was to be just Onetime Investment Without any After-investment Tensions..that too, when an Owner is known to be able to Use/Enjoy It totally 25 Days/Nights in an Year!!...
The Ownership Economic entails endless technical tensions of Man-management-n- Maintenance, Berthing & Insurance etc….
