it took the crew of the 40-metre Maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 skipper Ian Team to reach the equator!
The trimaran IDEC SPORT (Francis skipper, Guion), which currently holds the Jules Verne Trophy and, accordingly, the world record non-stop race around the world, the result for the same period was worse – 5 days 19 hours 11 minutes.
That is Spindrift 2 was to the equator is 22 hours and 47 minutes faster! The average velocity, note 26 knots.
Now Spindrift 2 crosses the Equatorial calm strip. Fortunately, this time it is not so broad and, in addition, allows to go with a relatively decent speed. The average for the last day of 22.8 per node.
The next leg of my journey, to the Cape of Good Hope IDEC-SPORT was held for 12 days 21 hours 22 minutes. It will be interesting to compare with the fact that at this distance will show Spindrift 2.
