Orange-II-attaque-sa-remonte-de-lAtlantique-SudPacific Express for Orange II

After Indian Ocean eaten in a little bit more than 9 days, Orange II hit an new Pacific Ocean record and pass off Cap Horn in 8 days and 18 hours since South end of Tasmania.
Maxi trimaran Orange II
(which is not the biggest of the world, Cheyenne is 38 meter long vs 37 for Orange II), continues to spin the stopwatches. Bruno Peyron : "...Boat is going very well and her speed is over polar curves registered last summer. I ma not really surprised by the dramatic potential of the boat, but I wasn't expecting to be able to use her and attack so much. Weather conditions allow us to use the boat between 90 to 100 % of her potential..."
No doubt about words of Orange II' skipper. At Cape Horn, the last important mark to round, times reference were explosive: Orange II has more than one week 2500 miles ahead Cheyenne
