41 Knots on B. Populaire

Three and a half years after being launched in August 2008 and after her second attempt, the Maxi Banque Populaire V has entered records’ history by taking the Jules Verne Trophy at the end of a navigation of 45 days 13 hours 42 minutes 53 seconds around the globe. Arrived in Brest this morning under the cheers of hundreds of supporters, Loïck Peyron and his crew have just completed an unprecedented exploit, covering 29 002 miles at an average speed of 26.51 knots.
