All categories were represented, from mach 6.50 to Anne Caseneuve’s 50 foot trimaran, which established the new record crossing the line after 6h 48 min24s. The longest boat was Eric Tabarly’s Pen Duick VI (22,5 meters) which was certainly the most experienced one with 2 Withbreads and more than 280 000 milles of navigation since 1973. See you next year !
Very interesting post in marine electronics reference blog PANBO, about Loic Peyron’s Gitana Eighty’s equipment (Peyron won the last Artemis Transat). One more time, MaxSea is in front page….
