He broke the solo round the world record ! François Gabart (34 years) aboard Macif trimaran just finished in 42 days 16 hours 40 minutes a sailing around the world trip and cut the (virtual) finish line off Brest. He builds on Thomas Coville’s extraordinary performance realized almost 1 year ago and thus reduces the record by nearly 6 days and 11 hours.
Macif trimaran -François Gabart’s ship finished in 2015- was the first of tall ocean racing trimaran to be fitted with foils and T-rudders. These innovations highlighted by the last editions of the America’s Cup are nowadays at the heart of every conception of racing boats.
C3 Technologies built these complex parts in carbone (foils, rudders, centerboard) and also bulkheads of this record breaking machine !
