PCP will become famous soon enough
Thomas Coville started his attempt on the solo circumnavigation sail record:

The record holder is Francis Joyon (solo) on Idec with 57 j 13 h 34' a difficult one to beat.

Here is the Teaser:



You can follow the attempt here:

Maxi-trimaran Sodebo - Record du tour du monde en solitaire

For now he is beating and losing time but soon he will have winds over 30K on the beam and should go like a rocket. I hope he does not take too much wind. This year that has been a nasty one!!!
