Indian Ocean Record

Taking just 8 days 17 hours and 39 minutes to traverse the Indian Ocean, the maxi trimaran Groupama 3, skippered by Franck Cammas, has taken the record held by Orange 2 since 2005.
It was at 23:22 UTC yesterday evening (Tuesday 23 February) that Groupama 3 crossed the longitude of Tasmania, to the South of Australia, which marks the exit from the Indian Ocean and the entry to the Pacific.
