Maxi trimaran Spindrift2 to attempt to break the crewed multihull record on the Discovery Route

From the following press release on the Spindrift Racing website:

Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard will continue their preparation on board the maxi trimaran Spindrift 2 this week off the coast of Brittany. A long training session, which should culminate with a round trip to the Azores, begins today in race trim, with the team. With that under their belt, the plan to sail increasingly in ocean conditions will see the team deliver the maxi to Portimao in Portugal at the end of September. From there the intention is to attempt to beat the record time for The Discovery Route between Cadiz and San Salvador in the Bahamas (7 days 10 hours 58 minutes and 53 seconds).
