PlayStation heads for the Caribbean for a bit of fun and sun

Having just broken the broken the East – West TransAtlantic sailing record by over a day, Steve Fossett’s maxi catamaran PlayStation is heading straight for the Caribbean island of St Maarten to compete in the Heineken Regatta on 7-9 March.

When PlayStation arrives in the Caribbean on Saturday she will join over 200 boats in the annual regatta which has a tremendous reputation for offering intense racing and partying.

The addition of PlayStation to the regatta however, will mean the organisers will have their work cut out ensuring the committee boat is on station in time for when the super-fast multihull crosses the finish line.
