10 Jan 2015 by a cargo ship in the Bay of Biscay (north of Spain)
and then was apparently picked up by a mariner 11 days later and
brought into Les Sables d'Olonne. For the complete story,

Kent Place School boat from Summit, New jersey
Traveled the gyre around the Sargasso Sea and came back to its
origin making landfall in S. Carolina on 15 July. It was recovered
by Joe Robilard in August 2013.
The Sebago Alliance Boat traveled quickly out to a spot southeast of the Azores and was retained there for many months. Is this the North Atlantic Garbage Patch?
