A small boat, not much bigger than a toy, has made quite a journey across an ocean.

Students at an elementary school in Charleston, South Carolina learned the boat made a complete trip, being found along the British coast, WCSC reported.

The Carolina Dreamer was launched by students at St. Andrew's School of Math and Science on May 17, 2015.

A few days later, it sailed to Bermuda, making landfall.

It was relaunched and eventually made its way to Borth, a coastal village in Wales, being picked up by a mother and her 3-year-old son who were walking along a beach Feb. 10.

The boat was taken to the village's school and the plan is to relaunch the sailboat for a trip back home to the states, WCSC reported.

The Carolina Dreamer had included a time capsule and a GPS tracker when it had launched from Charleston.

The boat was part of a program called Educational Passages where students prepare a boat for a trip to an unknown destination.

About 40 vessels have been launched since the program started in 2008.
