VIDEO: Three Days To Hawaii
Published on August 5th, 2015
The 105-foot trimaran Lending Club 2 reduced the Los Angeles to Honolulu outright record to rubble, blistering across in 3 days, 18 hours and 9 seconds, a full day faster than the existing record.
The World Sailing Speed Record Council confirmed the record set by co-skippers Renaud Laplanche (FRA) and Ryan Breymaier (USA), where their team on July 15-19 averaged 24.61 knots over the 2215 nm distance.
The previous record of 04:19:31:37 was set in November 2005 by Olivier de Kersauson (FRA) and crew on the 110-foot trimaran Geronimo.
