Photographer's Note

This is the maxi catamaran 'Playstation' from Steve Fosset. At the Heineken Sint Maarten Regatta Fosset brokes the record around the island. Our pressboat with two 200 pk outboard has problems to keep up with this big cat. That is fast, very fast. On the picture you see that the crew had set a rif in the mainsail. Look at the tiny crew at the back. The Playstation is very big. Here Fosset and his crew cross the finishline.

Now Fosset and his crew are going to attack the Jules Verne record. The Playstation has now a new name; Cheyenne.

Now the record is on name of Peyron. It had taken Peyron in his cat Orange 4 days, 8 ours, 37 minutes.

Yesterday Francis Joyon broke the solo record around the world. It had taken Joyon in his 90ft trimaran, IDEC, just 72 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes and 22 seconds, to complete a voyage of some 27,150 miles, giving him an incredible average speed around the globe of 15.50 knots.
