Pegasus Open 50 Tour, Part 5: Internet, Sat Phones, Kevlar, Heaters

The Open 50 raceboat's cabin has three satellite phones, a kevlar roof to pass wireless signals through and even Ethernet. The tour continues here.

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.
