The Pegasus Open 50 Raceboat Tour, Part 4: Barometer, Autopilot, Wind Meter and Keel Control

For those interested in how sailboats work, Bruce Mahoney of Pegasus Racing continues his tour of the tech inside the Open 50 Raceboat. Here he starts into the cabin, where weather and navigation are handled (dryly, I might add).

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.
