Franck Cammas and his 10-strong crew have smashed the Miami-New York record sailing Groupama 3 – the new maxi-multihull.
Team Groupama crossed the Ambrose Light finish line on Monday 4 June at 22hrs 36mins 40secs completing the course in an amazing 1 day, 11 hours, 5 minutes and 20 seconds which means they’ve knocked over 17 hours off Fossett’s 2 day, 5 hour, 54 minute and 42 second record set in 2001 aboard PlayStation.
Cammas and team also broke the Route of Discovery record (Cadiz – San El Salvador) earlier this year with a time of 7 days 10 hours 58 minutes and 53 seconds.
