Green code for Franck Cammas and Groupama
All systems are go for the French trimaran on standby in New York for the attempt to break the North Atlantic crossing record. Departure is possible within the next 24 to 48 hours and the crew will now be on stand-by on site, ready to leave within the next 24 hours.
Groupama is the holder of this record since 23rd July 2007 with a time of 4 days, 3 hours and 57 minutes, the maxi trimaran skippered by Franck Cammas has been given until 18th August to find the weather conditions. The aim is obviously an improvement on their own reference time and hopefully one that sees them complete the course in under four days.
