Trophée Jules Verne – Gitana – Day 7 – Gitana regains speed after the slow passage of the doldrums

After the tough passage of the Doldrums (here the video), the maxi-trimaran Gitana crossed the equator yesterday after 5 days and 13 hours, a lead of 5hrs 44min on the record of Francis Joyon FRA. In the southerly trade winds, Franck Cammas, Charles Caudrelier and their team are now making good progress again at 30kn+ and extended their lead to 158 miles. The race tracker and the daily report.
