Email message from Robin Knox-Johnston to Titouan Lamazou and Loïck Peyron (January 20, 2016) regarding the outstanding evolution of boats these last decades.
Robin Knox-Johnston: Do you realise that both Armel [Le Cléac’h] and Alex [Thomson] finished their circumnavigations faster by hours than Peter Blake and I did on Enza when we won the Jules Verne Trophee in 1994 ? It just shows how boats have developed in 23 years.
Loïck Peyron: Yes indeed. Impressive as what Thomas Coville did few weeks ago.
