Carbon Fibre Playstation Catamaran Misses Classic Sailing Record

30 August 2000

Skipper Steve Fossett plus his 11-man crew aboard the 105-foot maxi-catamaran PlayStation, just failed in their third attempt at breaking the TransAtlantic speed sailing record between New York and England due to a change in weather conditions. PlayStation skipper Fossett and his experienced crew were challenging the ten-year-old maritime benchmark aboard an extraordinary high-tech carbon fibre catamaran.
