Ocean Records – Port Louis MAU – Ho Chi Minh VIE – Day 7 – Standstill and on 30kn again

After a complete 7 hour standstill on the Indian Ocean – a first for Francis Joyon FRA – the trimaran IDEC regained speed and racing at 30kn again, she will pass the Sumatra-Java strait early tomorrow. Entering the Chinese Sea then, new challenges will await with many small islands and a dense traffic, not only cargo vessels, but including numerous tiny fisherman boats as well, a constant threat for collisions. —– The race tracker and t hedaily news.
