In But No Win
Thomas Coville arrives in Brest today in the maxi trimaran Sodeb’o, ending his non-stop solo around the world attempt.
Coville is the third sailor to finish a solo round the world without a stop on a multihull, after Francis Joyon and Ellen MacArthur. Coville did the tour in 59 days 20 hours, 47 minutes and 43 seconds, but did not beat Joyon’s record. Regardless, it was still a terrific effort, and a testament to the integrity of the boat and the man. Photo
