Trophée Jules Verne – Day 3 – both ultime-trimarans at record speeds


After two days of their record attempts, Sodebo (Thomas Coville FRA) and Gitana (Charles Caudrelier FRA, Franck Cammas FRA) have already reached the Canary Islands. Both trimarans have covered more than 750 miles in the past 24 hours, and the average speed is over 31kn (60 km/h), extending their lead over the record to over 120nm in the well-established trade winds.
