PlayStation is Green and Go
As everyone who has been following the latest generation of maxi-cats and their record breaking exploits will know, the current record is one of the toughest on the books. It stands at six days, 13 hours, three minutes and 32 seconds, and is held by Frenchman Serge Madec and the legendary Jet Services 5.
The big cat started as planned from Ambrose Light in New York Harbour on Wednesday 23rd August, at 18.49 GMT (14.49 local). Their meteorologist Bob Rice commented on the current weather pattern, ‘The overall pattern across the Atlantic looks acceptable based on current long range forecast data. Some problems will crop up of course, they always do, which is why records are records. And, this IS a difficult record to break.’
Twelve hours into their run, PlayStation was almost an hour ahead of Jet Services V comparable position on the record run. It doesn’t mean a lot with 2500 nm to go, but any edge is an edge.
