Round the World in 40 Days. (And 23 1/2 hours)

Congrats to Francis Joyon and his crew on a new Jules Verne Trophy record.

40 days, 23 hours 30 minutes 30 seconds.

Incredible.

The french have really been busy this past year. Coville, Le Cleac`h, and now Joyon. All races that test men's metal. Kind of dwarfs the America's Cup match races, (two matches a day then in your bed at night.)

1. Perhaps a little. I actually enjoyed the Americas Cup. Afterall, I didn't have to wait 74 days for the end

2 You are correct. Thanks

You see everyone, CF is a valuable resource for more than just boating info!!
