Motored Backwards as fast as some of the competitors going forward...

Good to see her out and about...

It's my understanding Chris Welsh of Ragtime bought her a while back.

Intentions unknown at this time, She was on the hard at Nelson's in Alameda for some time.

Here's a copy of the rig they used to film Morning Light:

The late Steve Fosset's 125-ft catamaran Cheyenne is on the hard at Nelson's to assess damage reportedly caused by an exploded liferaft canister. There's been no word yet as to the extent of the damage. Most recently, she was converted to a power cat and served as the camera platform for filming Roy Disney's Morning Light project in 2007 — chasing the project's namesake Transpac 52 across the Pacific. Prior to that, she set what's now the third fastest time around the globe under sail. She was commissioned by Fosset, and designed by the Southern California firm Morelli and Melvin to compete as PlayStation in Bruno Peyron's The Race at the turn of the millenium.

And a link to Mr Fossett's accomplishments with her (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.solarnavigator.net/images/cheyenne_world_record_catamaran.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.solarnavigator.net/steve_fossett.htm&h=161&w=265&sz=11&tbnid=giCtLezkawqp4M:&tbnh=68&tbnw=112&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dcheyenne%2Bcatamaran&hl=en&usg=__BfYO5cTZ4bECERuNMOTvrold1uc=&sa=X&ei=z4o2TPfUIoOosQOgg8WoBQ&ved=0CCsQ9QEwBg)
