Another speed record attempt

Sail logo Kimball Livingston, an editor at SAIL Magazine has a great post on his blog Sail West entitled Flying and Crashing Around Cape Horn wherein he takes a look at another sailing speed record attempt. This time it’s New York to San Francisco aboard the Gitana 13. Check it out.

It’s too bad that adventure sailing gets virtually no mainstreet media coverage here in the US. Francis Joyon and these guys are all heros in France.
