Despite trailing for the majority of the 605nm race, the French crew of Maxi Edmond de Rothschild persevered to the very end, passing fellow Ultime, Macif, virtually on the line to win the Line Honours battle by 58 seconds. Completing the course in 1 day 4 hours 2 minutes, co-skippers Charles Caudrelier and Franck Cammas and their team eclipsed the previous race record by some four hours.
