Another RTW Record Attempt.

Groupama 3 has started an attempt at the record for a fully crewed circumnavigation.
Sail World - Powerboat-World: Sail and sailing, cruising, boating news

She did 616 miles in the first 24 hours, and has previously sailed an incredible 794 miles over 24 hours - the current record.

The team say they can do the trip in 45 days!!!!
