Alex Pella rumbo a conseguir batir el récord de la Vuelta al Mundo a Vela

El “Idec Sport” cruzó la línea de salida en Ouessant (Francia) a las 21:14:45 horas de ayer domingo

Lunes, 21 de noviembre 2016.- Por segundo año consecutivo y, justo un día antes que el anterior intento, el navegante oceánico español, Alex Pella, ha zarpado rumbo a hacer historia a bordo del”Idec Sport”. A las 21:14:45 UTC, de ayer domingo, el maxi trimarán de Francis Joyon, cruzó la línea imaginaria entre el faro de Créac´h en la isla de Ouessant y el faro de cabo Lizard en U.K. “Tenemos la impresión de que este es el comienzo de algo grande”, ha comentado el patrón del “Idec Sport”.

El tiempo a batir es de 45 días, 13 horas, 42 minutos y 13 segundos, tiempo que en 2012 empleó el vigente poseedor del trofeo, el “Banque Populaire V”, de Loïck Peyron. Además de Francis Joyon y Alex Pella, la tripulación del “Idec Sport” está compuesta por Bernard Stamm (Suiza), Gwénolé Gabinet (Francia), Clément Surtel (Francia) y Boris Hermann (Alemania).

GAETANO MURA – SOLO ROUND THE GLOBE RECORD

Next Saturday Italian sailor Gaetano Mura will leave Cagliari, in Sardinia, for a 25,000 nm long, single-handed round-the-world voyage on a Class40 called Italia, aiming at the new distance record.

On Saturday, October 15, Sardinian navigator Gaetano Mura will leave his native island on bard a Class40, aptly called Italia for a voyage that will take him around the planet in an attempt to set the new time reference. Gaetano has been training for over one and a half year for this challenge: to sail more than 25,000 nautical miles around the world and beat China’s Guo Chuan record of 137 days. The start, that was originally planned for Wednesday October 12, has been delayed due to adverse weather conditions in southern Mediterranean. A powerful low-pressure forming over the Eastern Atlantic has been intensifying constantly and Gaetano Mura’s weathermen forecast winds as strong as 50 knots on the area accompanied by violent rainstorms and high seas, up to 6 metres. A situation that has urged Mura’s shore team to postpone the start for safety reasons and to enable the public to say goodbye to Gaetano.

FRANCIS JOYON WILL BE TACKLING THE JULES VERNE TROPHY AGAIN

Press release
Friday, 8th April

It’s now official: Francis Joyon will be setting off in the autumn to try to improve on the Jules Verne Trophy record time. It will once again be on his IDEC SPORT ‘ultime’ trimaran with a crew that he will attempt to complete the voyage in under 45 days. We met up with him to find out more.

Francis, this time it is official. A year after your first attempt, you will be setting off around the world again in the autumn to tackle the Jules Verne Trophy.
“Yes… we have not yet finished the job, so we’re going back. When we finished in Brest on 8th January (after 47 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes), we even thought about setting off again a few days later… but that was more or less said as a joke, as there was after all some work to do on the boat. This time, we are serious: we will move to stand-by in late October this year to make another attempt.”
