Steve Fossett with his catamaran, Cheyanne, (previously Sony Playstation) is soon to leave Plymouth in an attempt at the round the world Jules-Verne non-stop record. Basically this is down to the bottom of Africa, round Antarctica to the bottom of South America and back up again to Plymouth across the Atlantic. The current record is 64 days, 8 hours and some minutes.
I mention this because my mate Mark Featherstone is one of the crew and Mark has strong links with the RIB world in that he is a participator and narrator for the following RIB video titles:
and Small Boats, Big Seas
Mark, along with other members of this forum were also entrants in RB4, the Round Britain in 4m RIBs event in 2001.
If you do have an interest in this sort of thing, you can follow the event here:
Here is a piccie of the boat in MountBatten Marina, Plymouth, taken this morning.
