Saltsjobaden Big Boat 3: Spirit of Titan

This is the first of the three big racers that were moored in Saltsjobaden while we were there for the Square Metre Rule Regatta. Its the ORMA 60 trimaran Spirit of Titan.

Very cool piece of kit. We did wonder if anyone would notice if we just took her out for a spin and then spent the next ten minutes wondering which rope to start pulling first, and how to get her off the quay against the wind.

While it looked black carbon fibre state of the art we couldn't help but noticing the seats for whoever is helming were more basic, looking like standard office plastic:

Wonder if they need seat-belts?
