Google chief executive and co-founder Larry Page took a ride on one of the world's fastest sailboats while he mulled over investing in the part-boat, part-plane.
Page took a ride in the Hydroptere in San Francisco Bay last week, according to the Marin Independent Journal, while the boat's creator Alain Thebault hoped for a wealthy Silicon Valley sponsor. Thebault hopes to use the funds to try to break the trans-Pacific speed record.
