Virgin Money and Branson Begin Record Attempt


Yesterday, the 99 foot supermaxi Virgin Money, skippered by Milke Sanderson and crewed by Team Origin with a little help from Richard Branson and two of his children, left New York.

Meanwhile, they have put up some video that we thought we would publish here. 

The first shows Virgin Money a few hours out of New York – note the wave that comes over the deck towards the end.
