A mini boat which sailed from Charlestown, South Carolina, USA and arrived in Cork inspired a project to connect Cork primary children to their peers on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The project titled "Cork Mini boat Atlantic Adventure" included the creation of the mini-boat art booklet to document the journey and also showcase the collection of amazing art work highlighting Cork's rich maritime heritage. The artwork created by over 300 primary school children was used to create a montage to cover the hull of the boat to prepare for the return journey. The flipbook below charts this story.
