They crashed it in the first race I think and the boat was heavily damaged, it was a miracle that they managed to repair it for the second race in Germany. After the repairs it was obviously not very competitive:

I've got a couple of magazines and two books about the '93 series and all the pics show the red/gold 40'?

I remember I read an article about Kjell Inge Rokke in one of my friends Yacht magazines (he's a Superyacht fanatic). The article was written shortly after the disappearence of the Reverie team and said that Rokke was forced to sell his 231' Benetti and his 737 Buisiness Jet because he owed the bank about 450 000 000$ (then the $ was worth something). Now, a few years later I see this:

I know it is a bit off topic but please tell me:
WTF do I do wrong???
