Lagoon 421 vs Banque Populaire

Not sure whether that was already posted here, but just in case, it is too impressive to miss.
Watch Lagoon 421 being passed by Banque Populair trimaran mid Atlantic. View from trimaran: Pause the video at 0:35 to double-take at instruments: 35kts of boat speed in 25kts of true wind. Not surprising they made it around the world in less than 46 days.

The same from cat:

Poor 421. The only good thing is that both were designed by the same guys (naval architects Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prévost)
