Happy New Year.

Joyon’s progress and speeds are  fantastic. In Enza we averaged 448 miles per day between Africa and Australia, or about 18 1/2 knots and we thought we were fast, (it certainly felt fast!) but here we are, 23 years later, and the speeds are around 30 knots. 

Would not you love to be on that boat right now ? I would love it.
I know the Vendee has a wonderful competition right now, but Joyon’s race against time is phenomenal.
What is next ? A larger trimaran with foils?
