Leftover wood from the Olympic velodrome is being turned into a boat for the Cultural Olympiad.

Pieces of timber which were going to be used to build the cycling venue have been donated, along with things like tennis rackets and rulers, to make the 30 foot long ship.

The vessel will make its maiden voyage along the south coast in May 2012.
