Вот так вот...

Claiming that "no potential terrorists will be allowed into the sovereign waters of the United States," the 2008 Transat has been halted by the US government. Utilizing the much ballyhooed Department of Homeland Security's new Small Vessel Security Strategy, a US frigate, the USS Donald Rumsfeld (pictured above) shockingly fired warning shots across the bows of the fleet after the sailors originally refused to stop. All boats and skippers have been halted, taken to port with boats impounded and sailors held for questioning, respectively. We are waiting further word to our incredibly bogus story. We're kidding...

Actually, the 2,800 mile Artemis Transat solo "sprint" race across the Atlantic, from Sutton Harbor Plymouth England to Rowes Wharf, Boston USA is underway and going well. Potentially a fascinating race, this one bears watching. And we'll be sure to let you know if the boats get "halted" again...
