French trimaran invasion in New York continues unabated
After Banque Populaire docked in the Gateway marina in Brooklyn a week ago, it was the turn of Thomas Coville aboard his Sodeb'O maxi trimaran to arrive in New York the following day and then finally Groupama, two days ago, but without Franck Cammas who is currently in Hyères, racing in the iShares Cup.
All three giant triamarans are in New York for the same reason, an attempt to break the North Atlantic crossing record, from the Big Apple to Cap Lizard in the UK.
