The giant Gitana 17 trimaran towards the Jules Verne Trophy
This trimaran flies over its foils at more than 40 knots.
The Gitana 17, the fastest ocean ship in the world.
Her skippers, Franck Cammas and Charles Caudrelier are preparing to attempt the absolute record of sailing around the world in less than 40 days.
Gitana 17, also known as Edmond de Rothschild Group, is the flying trimaran reputed to be the fastest in the world.
For those who love sailing and the sea, winter will be extraordinary. There will be many sailors around the world: solo in the Vendée Globe and as a crew in the Jules Verne Trophy, where the two most important French teams, Sodebo by Thomas Coville and Gitana by Franck Cammas and Charles Caudrelier, will try to improve the 40 days and 23 hours of the absolute record.
While waiting for the best weather window to begin in this Jules Verne Trophy, the Sodebo and Gitana teams compete for innovation, speed.
