Has this been discussed? Francis Joyon's Record

I don't remeber seeing this in any threads, maybe I missed it.
Francis Joyon is now the fastest around alone.

Video: 30' Tri IDEC Fastest World Solo, 57 days

Yes indeed what a remarkable achievement. French sailor Francis Joyon broke the previous solo record by FOURTEEN DAYS! Blew it away! Interesting that only one crewed boat has done it faster than him. Should also raise a lot of questions about size, waterline length since the tri was only 30'. Scroll down at:

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

IDEC Thirty Meters Not Feet

The original story at

French Guy Francis Joyon Involved in Time Warp Speed Travel « MARINE BLAST Sailing videos

stated "On board his thirty foot trimaran designed by the design team of Irens/Cabaret, Francis Joyon has the additional satisfaction of sailing all the way around the world “cleanly”..." Thus, the thirty foot reference.

29.7 meters is the length for IDEC given at:

bymnews.com

Maybe he'll do it in a 30 footer next time.
