Starting New Years Eve 2000, Team Adventure and six other catamaran crews battled their way from Barcelona, Spain, to Marseilles, France. The long way.
It was called The Race, and it may well have been the race: 26,000 miles (41,834 kilometers) around the world. Nonstop.
As part of Team Adventures drive to reveal the science behind the adventure, they e-mailed dispatches and 360-degree photos from what they called the worlds fastest sailboat.
