Around the world in 42 days: new solo record

1 post in this topic

A French sailor has smashed the record for travelling around the world single-handed, completing the journey in just 42 days and 16 hours.

Francois Gabart managed to beat the previous record - set by fellow Frenchman Thomas Coville last Christmas - by six days and 10 hours. Many pundits felt such an achievement was unthinkable.

The 34-year-old made the record-breaking journey in a 98ft (30m) trimaran - a sailing yacht with a main hull with two smaller floats attached - called Macif.
