Yacht captains take to the water for relay race at Benetti Yachtmasters

ADVERTISEMENT

About two dozen yacht captains joined Benetti executives and sponsors this morning in a relay race using Seabobs. Many of the captains had never used the underwater scooters, or had used them years ago when they first were introduced. They noted the new models were easier to handle and all agreed they were fun to drive. The winners were Gruppo Italia — a group of Italian captains and Nick Bischoff, head of Benetti Americas.
