More Plastiki – A figurehead named Elizabeth Jagger?
Weather and preparations permitting, Plastiki, David de Rothschild's 60-foot catamaran made from recycled plastic bottles, might shove off for its 11,000-mile trip across the Pacific from San Francisco, Calif., to Sydney, Australia. However, space on board will be limited to six or seven. Four will be the primary sailing crew, the rest (i.e. a camera team from National Geographic) will document the trip for posterity. See also the Sailing News Interview with de Rothschild. Therefore, a report about Elizabeth Jagger, the oldest daughter of Rolling Stones front man Mick joining the trip sounded a little peculiar. Lizzie is a famous model and an actress, not an ocean sailor. Maybe we're missing something here, so we checked with the Plastiki Camp and were told: 'Lizzie Jagger was at their christening party Saturday night and someone must have started a rumor.'
