Around the world in 49 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes and 30 seconds. Thomas Coville and his 31m maxi trimaran Sodebo Ultim’ has shattered the solo around the word record by over eight days. Eight days, 10 hours, 26 minutes and 28 seconds to be exact.
This adventure is Coville’s fourth attempt to break the previous record of 57 days and 13 hours set by Francis Joyon in January 2008. Coville joins Joyon and Ellen MacArthur in the prestigious, small group of three multihull sailors who have sailed around the world, nonstop and without assistance.
And after 50 days at sea, with little sleep, Coville is only focused on one thing. “Right now, I have only one desire: to sleep and to let my mind rest. I want to fall asleep by simply telling myself: Everything is fine!”
Coville trusted North Sails 3DiTM to get him around the world quickly and safely. He and his Sodebo Ultim’ team worked with the North Sails team in France to make this record dream a reality. Everyone at North Sails is incredibly proud of Thomas and this amazing achievement.
Bravo Thomas pour votre voyage fantastique.
