What’s On Board: Cheyenne

Every now an then I will give you a glimpse into the electronic and communications heart of some of the most remarkable yachts in the world.

Steve Fossett’s design brief for this boat was pretty straightforward: “the best boat for racing fully crewed, non-stop, around the world, as fast as possible.”
