Ended a 27-day attempts to set a world record for the classic distance of a Tea race from Hong Kong to London, which take the French skipper Francis Joyon and his crew of four on the Maxi trimaran IDEC Sport.
Behind 13 393 nautical miles. Left to overcome 2128. And barring anything unexpected, the record (despite recent doubts) is to be held. Because right now, IDEC Sport ahead of his virtual rival – the current owner of record of the Tea racing Maxi-trimaran Maserati Multi 70 with skipper Giovanni Soldini – 312 miles.
Yes, right now, Guion and To enter the next area in light winds, but the achieved benefits should be sufficient, and when this damned area will be able to overcome, IDEC Sport – look at the tracker – will fly forward.
Recall that the record in a Maserati and Soldini – 36 days, 2 hours, 37 minutes and 2 seconds. To improve this achievement, IDEC Sport and Guyon must cross the finish line, passing under the bridge of Queen Elizabeth II on the Thames, not later than 11 hours, 36 minutes and 58 seconds on Saturday 23 February.finishlondonmiles
