He's also (more importantly) a good way ahead of the transatlantic record.

Ellen will have a tough time when she has another go at that one!

Well he did the record but then he fell asleep on the way back to port and the boat is now lost. News at

It's a great shame to end a voyage in that way.

Such a shame  

As big tris go, IDEC was very elegant and good looking. All her proportions just looked 'right'. No doubt Joyon will already be thinking about a replacement and I hope it will look just as 'right'.
