Francis Joyon on the new IDEC trimaran (formerly Groupama3/BPVII) to make attempt to better Jules Verne record

Francis Joyon has announced that he will attempt to better the Jules Verne record currently held by Banque Populaire V on his new trimaran the former G3.  He is going to make the attempt with a relatively smaller crew of just six.

Spindrift Racing also have their eyes on the prize and are going to go on standby around the same time on the specially modified 40 metre trimaran Spindrift 2 which is now sporting a new mast and various tweaks to enable the boat to be sailed by less crew.
