Jules Verne. Spindrift and IDEC Sport meet in the Southern Ocean.

This Morning (15 December), Spindrift 2 crossed paths with IDEC Sport – Francis Joyon’s trimaran, also currently racing on the Jules Verne Trophy round-the-world crewed record attempt in the Pacific.

By crossing the longitude of South East Cape, the southernmost tip of Tasmania last Saturday, December 12, 2015, Spindrift 2 set a new record time for crossing the Indian Ocean (Cape Agulhas-Tasmania in 8 days 4 hours and 35 minutes), but more importantly for the passage between Ushant and the entrance into the Pacific: 20 days 04 hours and 37 minutes, which is 2 hours and 34 minutes better than the holder of the Jules Verne Trophy.
