Thumbs up Francis Joyon with 57 years of age refuses getting old

Some months ago he beat the absolute solo sail record on the transat to Central America:




and now here he goes again, attempting the big one, the absolute solo North Atlantic Record. He leaved New York today morning doing about 20k in route to Cape Lizard (UK).

He has to do better than 5 days, 19 hours, 29 minutes and 20 seconds to beat the actual record that belongs since 2008 to Thomas Coville ("Sodebo").

That's the kind of old men that I like
