Re: ORMA 60 tris to "do" the Hobart

I believe Joyon beat the Atlantic record. Unless I am off with my French now it stands at 5d2h - full 10% off the earlier time (Colville's?).

Fassssst.

He has the fastest single handed record but the actual fastest is held by Banque Populaire V with 3 days 15 hours.
Transatlantic sailing record - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mari-Chi IV is the fastest mono woth 6d 17H which is almost double Banques time.

Here's the WSSRC site. They certify every record attempt worldwide. If they didn't ratify it then it didn't happen. Team Australia is in there.

Yep. Joyon is the single-handed category. A couple of days earlier FRA25 took the single handed mono record (that's MG on Safran).

Just think what the new records will be when foilers enter the scene ...

Yes, but he didn't enjoy driving the motor driven canting keelers.
