    L’Université de Saint Andrews, en Écosse, vient d’ouvrir une bouteille jetée à la mer. Le message contenu dans la bouteille a été écrit il y a 23 ans

    Cet été, l’Université de Saint Andrews a organisé un nettoyage de la côte et de la plage. Les volontaires rassemblaient étudiants, professeurs et employés de l’établissement écossais. La soixantaine de bénévoles a récolté des dizaines de sacs poubelles de déchets et débris. Alors que ses collègues ramassaient détritus et autres bois morts, Mary Stevens, elle, reconnut une bouteille. Le groupe fut surpris et plutôt heureux de retrouver cette bouteille avec un mystérieux message à l’intérieur, datant de 1985.

    Le groupe se mit à rechercher la personne, auteur de ce mot. Il s’agit d’un jeune garçon de 11 ans, à l’époque. Il ne s’agissait pas d’un naufragé mais tout simplement d’un jeu d’enfant. Aujourd’hui, l’homme de 33 ans, Donald Wylie, explique que, sous l’impulsion de sa mère, il jetait régulièrement des bouteilles à la mer. Il a du en jeter des centaines de sa ville d’Orkney, située, elle aussi, en Écosse. Il a reçu, dans le passé, des réponses du Danemark et de Norvège, mais toujours lorsqu’il était enfant. C’est la première bouteille qu’il reçoit avec autant de délai.

    Cette sympatique bouteille est venue polluer les côtes pendant 23 ans.

    L’homme a été invité à venir retirer sa bouteille à l’endroit où l’équipe de St Andrews l’a retrouvé. Le texte de la bouteille donnait l’adresse du garçon et disait :

    Hello! I am a 11 year old boy my name is Donald Wylie. Date of birth 17/9/1972*
    I am throwing this bottle message into the sea at Sandside beach Deerness Orkney Islands. If the finder is much older than myself could you please find a boy my age if thats possible. Thank you so much. With best wishes Donald Wylie.

    La mère de Donald Wylie perpétue la tradition. Elle jette dé****ais des bouteilles avec son petit fils... Rendez-vous dans 25 ans !

    25 year old message in a bottle reunited with its owner.


    Wednesday 20 August 2008



    [​IMG]

    As an eleven year old boy in 1985, Donald Wylie tossed a bottle into the Orkney sea, with a message asking its finder to track him down. Today (Thursday 21 August 2008), almost a quarter of a century later, Donald will be reunited with the bottle which eventually washed up hundreds of miles away on the West Sands in St Andrews.

    The message in a bottle was the star find among debris collected by a team of keen eco-volunteers taking part in a community beach clean over the summer. The group, which included students and staff from the University of St Andrews, were startled to find a message despatched to sea twenty-three years ago.

    [​IMG]Organisers from the University and Fairmont St Andrews Hotel launched a search to find the sender and were delighted to track him down - still living in Orkney and a house builder. When Donald confirmed the story, the organisers invited him to St Andrews to collect the bottle and see for himself where it eventually surfaced.

    Donald threw his message in a bottle into the sea at the Sandside beach in Deerness on Orkney. Written inside was a note asking the finder to pass it on to a boy of a similar age.

    Today 33 year old Donald recalls regularly going down to the beach as a young boy with his mum, who encouraged him to throw hundreds of bottles into the sea over the years - even now, she continues the tradition at the same beach with her grandchildren. When contacted by the organisers, Donald said, "Over the years I've had a few replies, usually from Norway or Denmark, but never one from St Andrews and never one that's taken this long to wash up."

    Almost sixty volunteers took part in the beach cleanup which filled 77 black bags of debris including nine pieces of wood, five litres of diesel in a plastic bottle, two fish crates, one barrel and a single Wellington boot. The bottle was found by Mary Stevens (pictured with Donal above), a mature student at the University and member of staff at ELT (English Language Teaching). It is hoped that the beach clean will become a bi-annual event, with another planned in October.

    Roddy Yarr, Environment and Energy Manager for the University of St Andrews said, "The summer event was the first in a series that we hope will be part of a long-term effort to promote the importance of keeping the town's beaches clean. By involving local business, we hope that in the future local groups will be given their own slice of beach to look after.

    "The message in a bottle was really quite a find and surprised us all, and we're delighted to be able to reunite the owner with this piece of history. It really is quite remarkable that the bottle should be found after all this time - who knows where it has travelled to in the last quarter of a decade."
