UPDATE: The Soldini Maserati team set a new New York to San Francisco sailing record of 47 days, 2 hours and 33 minutes, breaking the previous record by ten days.
Sometime Saturday, the Soldini team sailing the 70′ Maserati is expected to sail under the Golden Gate bridge, breaking the previous monhull speed record for sailing between New York and San Francisco by way of Cape Horn by roughly ten days. Soldini and his eight man crew set sail on Maserati from New York on New Year’s Eve. As of 16:00 EST Maserati was approximately 120 NM from the finish line at the Golden Gate Bridge. Congratulations to the Maserati team.
