Franck’s Other Tri


Franck Cammas has been teaching the BOR guys how to sail Dogzilla, but now he has his own monster to sea trial. The maxi-trimaran Groupama 3, which just one year ago was upside down, off New Zealand, with one float broken off. Today, G3 was back in the water with two beefed up floats and Franck is scheduled to start trials. This year’s targets are the Mediterranean crossing record, held by Bruno Peyron on Orange II, his own trans-Atlantic record and, of course, that Orange II Jules Verne, round the world record!  Relaunch pic by Arnaud Pilpré/Studio Zedda and more G3 pix here.
