Joyon is back in business! A few months after his astonishing record Round
the World, of just over 57 ½ days, the Locmariaquer sailor is readying
his giant trimaran IDEC for new adventures.
on the agenda is the Mediterranean record, between Marseilles and Carthage
(Tunisia), which is held by Bruno Peyron and crew in maxi-multihull Orange
II. Francis doesn’t expect to rival Peyron’s 25 knot plus average,
but he does want to raise the solo record as high as possible.
September, IDEC will go to Cadiz (Spain), in readiness for an attempt
at record of the "Discovery Route", between Cadiz (Spain) and
San El Salvador (the Bahamas). More here.
