Frenchman Jean-Jacques Savin is traveling to the Caribbean in a barrel

Jean-Jacques Savin has set off from El Hierro in Spain’s Canary Islands in a 10ft-long barrel for a three-month voyage he hopes will take him to Barbados, Martinique or Guadaloupe. The 71-year-old had worked on his vessel for months in the small shipyard of Ares on France’s southwest coast. Measuring 10ft long and nearly 7ft across, it is made from resin-coated plywood, heavily reinforced to resist waves and potential attacks by orca whales.
