Ocean Records – Route du Thé – Hongkong HKG-London GBR – Day 27, IDEC on track for the record

The trade wind belt north of the Equator was only small and the Trimaran IDEC is now crossing a new zone of lighter winds, hopefully the last obstacle in his record attempt, before Francis Joyon FRA and his team will reach the powerful westwind stream on the Acores altitude. However, the record in the Tea Ride to England will be beaten, provided no equipment failures occur, as the advance on the benchmark was 320nm this morning UTC. —– The race tracker and the news.
