Next frontier, Cape of Good Hope

Behind 12 day non-stop race around the world 40-meter Maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 skipper Ian Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. 24 hours passed 755 nautical miles.

Needless to say, this is a high average speed of Spindrift 2 within 12 days was 31.5 per node. But the speed of virtual opponents Guichard and Co – current holder of the Jules Verne Trophy Francis Guaiana and his trimaran IDEC-SPORT – in the same time period was even higher, 34.7 per node, so per day they managed to get 833 nautical miles.

So, the advantage of Spindrift 2 on IDEC SPORT has declined. A day ago was more than 400 nautical miles. Now it is exactly 350.

And soon, after a few hours, Spindrift 2 crossed the longitude of Cape of Good Hope.

As you know, IDEC-SPORT during his record attempt in 2017 reached this milestone after 12 days, 19 hours and 41минуту after the start. From Spindrift 2 the result should be better. But how?
