Default NY to UK sail race, 100 yr record likely to be broken

Here is the link, I just was downtown looking at some of them.

Click on the photos of the 20 mega yachts entered.

Really incredible, one is 178 feet long with a Helicopter landing pad on the back of this "sailboat". Check out Drumbeat currently docked at North Cove marina at the WFC in NY. I'd argue many are really ships, not boats or yachts!

Start was supposed to be Saturday, but looks like it was delayed until Sunday. Depending on offshore waves I may cruise out for the start at the Ambrose light. Anyone else?
