Came to the end of the eighth day, round-the-world Odyssey of the 40-metre Maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 skipper Ian Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
During these 8 days, the team and 11 members of his crew overcame 5249 nautical miles (will have to overcome another 18 044). And soon, Spindrift 2 will head East, turning to the African continent.
Trimaran IDEC-SPORT with a skipper Francis Guyana, which currently holds the Jules Verne Trophy during his record attempt reached the longitude of the Cape of Good Hope after 12 days, 19 hours and 41 minutes after the start of the world tour. We can assume that Spindrift 2 will do it faster, but how?
In fact, it is a question. Because the last day the team lost a considerable part of his benefits over a virtual opponent – 171 nautical mile! Spindrift 2 is still confident ahead – now he is ahead of schedule IDEC-SPORT miles on the 405, but with each passing hour the distance between them becomes smaller.
The average speed of Spindrift 2 fell to 23 knots. For comparison, IDEC-SPORT walked around the world (which lasted 40 days, 23 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds) at an average speed of 22.84 site…
However, in the next day and a half, according to meteorologists, the situation for the Team and needs To improve. Believe the forecasts?
