50 day round the world barrier falls

Saturday March 20 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Congratulations to Franck Cammas and the crew of Groupama 3 who have set a new record for sailing non-stop around the world in the Jules Verne Trophy of 48 days 7 hours 44 minutes and 52 seconds. In the process they have not only sliced 2 days 8 hours, 35 minutes and 12 seconds off Orange 2’s five year old record but they have become the first to take this record below 50 days. For the second consecutive year Emirates Team New Zealand has won the Louis Vuitton Trophy Auckland.

They have done well to claw

They have done well to claw back the deficit incurred in the south Atlantic. And also to demonstrate that they now understand how to use hydrofoil assistance in the southern ocean without breaking the boat.
