Trophée Jules Verne for Geronimo
April 29 at 13.17 Gmt, Olivier de Kersauson' trimaran Geronimo crossed the finishing line of her non stop round the world record attempt with crew, improving Bruno Peyron' Orange time reference by a little bit more than half a day.
Geronimo has round the world in 63d 13h 59min 46s versus 64d 08h 37min 24s for Orange, saving 14h 47mn 38s.During the press conference ashore, the skipper of the Cap Gemini Ernst & Young / Scnneider Electric trimaran has thanks Multiplast yard for the nice construction of his boat. "She has been used hard..."Geronimo is so the new Trophée Jules Verne record holder. However, we have to keep in mind the absolute record around the world done beginning April 2004 by Cheyenne in 58d 9h 32min 45s.
