New record of Transat Jacques Vabre 2017

The trimaran Sodebo Ultim under the command of Tom Covill and Jean-Luc Nelia set a new record on the transatlantic race Transat Jacques Vabre. 4360 nautical miles from Le Havre to Salvador was completed in 7 days 22 hours 07 minutes 27 seconds! Technical facilities of Sodebo Ultim are substantially inferior to Maxi Edmond de Rothschild.

The championship of regatta and the best result (10 days and 38 minutes) in 2007 belonged to the trimaran Groupama 2 until that time.
