Jouillon improved the record by almost a week!
This morning, the transition of 63-year-old French skipper Francis Gouillon on the IDEC SPORT maxi-trimaran from Port Louis in Brittany to another Port Louis, on the island of Mauritius, has completed.
Jouillon covered the distance of 8800 nautical miles in 19 days, 18 hours, 14 minutes and 45 seconds, and this is a new world record. The previous achievement, set by him 10 years ago (26 days, 4 hours, 13 minutes and 29 seconds), the French skipper managed to improve for almost a week!
