The world's fastest boat

Wednesday June 16 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

After a brief Pete Goss diversion on Friday, today we publish our look at Alain Thebault’s incredible L’Hydroptere and how it took 25 years to become the world’s fastest boat. The French visionary also talks about his next project – to take a maxi-foiler round the world on a Jules Verne Trophy attempt. In the two handed Round Britain and Ireland Race, race leader Paradox is due into Lerwick this morning. Francis Joyon is to take part in the JPMorgan Round the Island Race this Saturday with the forecast lining up to provide him with conditions to break his record.
