MIAMI, FL (KPLR) - They call it the Everest of sailing. It’s a yacht race around the world in nine months, and on board technology is making it all happen. Rich DeMuro is in Miami, where the teams are making their only North American stop.

DeMuro was aboard the 70 foot yacht Mar Mostro, just off the coast of Miami Beach. By the end of the race the boat will have traveled 40,000 miles around the world, all thanks to some high tech features on board.

Think yachting and luxury might come to mind. But not on this 70 foot sailboat

Ken Read, the Puma Team Skipper, explains, “We wouldn't be out here if we didn't like it.”
