With the Titan Over the Atlantic

The latest attempt to cross the Atlantic, from Gran Canaria to Barbados, is right now under way. Today the Titan, which is the lightest eight-man ocean boat ever, is on her twelfth day out on the open water. Her seven-man crew (!) is chasing the current record, 32 days, and is hoping to speeding across the Atlantic in under amazing 30 days.
