400 years ago, this wooden ship behind me named the Mayflower set sail from an English port and changed the history of two continents.
It was carrying a group of European Puritan settlers bound for a new life across the Atlantic Ocean.
Today they are recreating the journey but in a rather more modern vessel.
This Mayflower will however have no crew or passengers and will cross the sea powered by sun – as well as the wind. Sarah Morice reports.
