Round-the-world record setting Cheyenne catamaran

Steve Fossett, then 59-year-old American millionaire and his crew of 12, sailed into the record books at around 1600 BST on Monday 5th April. The 125-foot catamaran Cheyenne shaved almost six days off the existing record after crossing the official start and finish line at Le Stiff lighthouse on Ouessant.

The Morning Light documentary, produced by avid sailor Roy Disney, followed the campaign of a bunch of youth setting out on and sailboat of the same name through the 2,500 mile transPacific yacht race. The Cheyene was re-purposed as a chase boat to provide the ultimate ocean camera platform.
