Ocean Records – Route du Thé – Hongkong HKG-London GBR – Day 5, out on the Indian Ocean


After four days of his record attempt, Francis Joyon FRA and his maxi trimaran IDEC left the Sunda Strait between Sumatra and Java yesterday. With numerous fishing boats, small islands not listed on the maps and limited visibility due to smoke from forest fires and the currently active Krakatau volcano, the passage was not easy. Despite of this and in light winds, the record lead was nevertheless up on 337nm this morning UTC. —– The race tracker, the news and a video.
