Branson Record Averted

Branson Record Averted

Richard Branson was at it again. This time his goal was to establish a new record of sailing across the Atlantic Ocean . His boat, a 99′ sloop, Virgin Money, left NYC early Wednesday morning with a crew that included Branson’s two grown children to try to break the record.  He was video taped and interviewed Thursday in a stormy Atlantic Ocean with a speed of 36 miles per hour.

Unfortunately today, he halted the trip due to damage to his boat and the loss of a life raft.

You can follow him on Twitter at and also view his blog.
