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.
