    Bottle with message tossed close to Falklands emerges five years later in New Zealand

    The message was dropped into the south Atlantic, 300 miles south west of the Falkland Islands, launched on Friday, January 20 2012.

    Tossed into the sea by a sailor on a yacht in the Atlantic ocean, a message in a bottle drifted across the seas for five years. Some 8000 kilometers later, it washed up on a Northland beach in New Zealand. A couple were walking along the waterfront near their home when the corked wine bottle caught their eye. Inside was a letter thrown into the sea near the Falkland Islands, penned on January 20, 2012.
