Trophee Jules Verne

The 131ft French VPLP designed trimaran “Banque Populaire V” skippered by Bruno Peyron’s brother Loick Peyron are due south of us in Adelaide today at 48 degrees latitude after setting a new record between France and Cape Leeuwin of 17 days!!!  Almost incredible as when they did a 906 mile day when they set the record from New York to England a few years ago of three days…They are already two days ahead of Frank Cammas Jules Verne around the world speed record of 48-days!!!  It might be a 45 day or under lap of the planet!!!
