On standby for transatlantic record attempt

Published on May 14th, 2013

French multihull sailor Francis Joyon and the 97-foot IDEC trimaran will be based at Dennis Conner’s North Cove harbor in New York City, and will wait for a weather window to challenge the solo transatlantic (west to east) Record. In 2008, Joyon and IDEC set the current solo, non-stop round the world record of 57 days, 13 hours and 34 minutes, beating the previous record by 14 days. Joyon will seek to break the transatlantic record set by Thomas Coville (FRA) in 2008 of 05:19:30:40. – Team website
