Hyperion beats to weather in the St Barts Bucket race

Jill Borrow- Boat International
"The Titan Hyperion, we are told, fathered Helios, Selene, and Eos, gods of the sun, moon and dawn respectively. The yacht Hyperion has engendered an advance in the science and art and craft of shipbuilding. The yachting cosmos is richer for it."

Marilyn Mower- ShowBoats International
" It's not surprising that the (owner) would like to sail; he is, after all, a physicist by training, and sailing is nothing if not applied physics. But is also a tremendously energetic engineer, inventor, entrepreneur, and computer genius. It wouldn't be just and sailboat that could hold his attention"

Michael Lewis-author of "The new new thing"
"The boat was forged in the heat of a debate between a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and a Dutch Old Master. And, by some miracle, it turned out beautifully."
