Ocean Records – Route du Thé – Hongkong HKG-London GBR – Day 26, up to speed again


Finally blessed by the northern tradewinds, Francis Joyon FRA and his team accelerated again and the small backlog on the record when crossing the Equator was turned into a 266nm lead again this morning UTC. The remaining 2600nm to London can be covered by the Maxi-Trimaran IDEC within 5 to 6 days, a substantial improvement of the existing time. The race tracker and the news.
