Pegasus Open 50 Raceboat Tour, Part 3: Turning, Emergency Hatches, Ballast and the Hydraulic Keel

Bruce Mahoney continues his tour of the Team Pegasus Open 50 Raceboat. If you like sailing and high performance vehicles, you'll get something out of this video.

Apologies again for the shakey cam. Didn't have a wide enough angle on board that day, nor the mic range to make it work.

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.
