Video: Speedboat's first race


 
Footage from Saturday's racing at the New York YC's Annual Regatta
This weekend in Newport at the New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta (presented by Rolex) there was much new hardware racing for the first time - including Alex Jackson's massive Juan K-designed maxi Speedboat, Jim Swartz's new STP65 Moneypenny, the new IRC 68 Bella Mente, Ken Reid and his red-clad round the world troupe on their new VO70 Puma. See our footage of the boats out on the race course here . NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is LARGE in size - therefore only suitable for those with a broadband connection. Mac users can now view .wmv files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC in Internet Explorer, on a Mac it must download first.
