Jules Verne Trophy
Full speed flight of the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild
During the last hours when they made a controlled turn to the east of the coast of Brazil, the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild have clearly been lengthening their pace.
Doing it consistently at over 30 knots, peaking at 35-40 knots, clocking the miles at a very high speed, and increasing his lead over Francis Joyon’s record in the process.
They had 732 miles in credit on the 07:00 UTC position report, compared to 442 miles at the same time yesterday.
Today’s blue skies will lead to moderate conditions ahead of the front.
