Pegasus Team Operations Manager Bruce Mahoney continues his tour of the Open 50 race sailboat, picking up with how they mount the carbon fiber mast, the dagger boards, rigging material and sails. The boat crosses the starting line tomorrow!
Apologies for the shakey camera. The Flip Mino's short mic range, the wind, the size of the boat and the narrowness of the lens made things hard, but I didn't make them any better.
Philippe Kahn founded Borland, invented the Camphone, and decodes human motion. He's also a fellow outdoorsman, splitting time skiing Tahoe and sailing in Santa Cruz. He'll share his Transpac 2009 sailing race with us live from the Pegasus Open 50. He and Richard Clarke set the race record for a double handed team in 2008 with a time of 7 days, 15 hours, 17 minutes and 50 seconds, besting all boats in overall time for that year.
