Orange 2 soon re launched
Round the world under sail record holder must go back to the water end of March, after winter time spent at Multiplast yard.
Orange 2 must quickly be afloat for her 2006 campaign. Program: possible start with the Discovery Road between Cadix (Spain) and San Salvador (Bahamas) and one of the nicest course, New-York / Lizard (UK).Keep in mind the record is still held by the 125-foot maxi catamaran PlayStation/Cheyenne of American Steve Fossett since 2001 in 4d 17h 59' 18'' at the average speed of 25.78 knots ; and in August 2004, Bruno Peyron has failed for just 31 minutes and 12 seconds to overlap Fossett. Orange 2 is so the second world time record holder on that course, having during this attempt smashed the 24-hour world record with 706.2 miles (29.42 kts average speed).
