Virgin Money on the point of sinking...

Virgin Money has become the latest victim of the credit crunch. But this time it's not a run on the bank, but Richard Branson's 99-foot yacht that's found itself in a bit of a pickle. The entrepreneur has abandoned his record attempt to cross the Atlantic in a single-hulled vessel, the aforementioned 'Virgin Money', after it was damaged and knocked off course by raging storms during a "night from hell".
The billionaire adventurer was attempting the record with two of his kids and Olympic sailor Ben Ainslie, when 40-foot waves and force nine gales damaged the boat, forcing them to quit. Unfazed by the experience, Branson intends to proceed with his next project: single-handedly saving the world's economy whilst crossing the Andes by frog.
