    Francis Joyon has announced that he will attempt to better the Jules Verne record currently held by Banque Populaire V on his new trimaran IDEC the former G3/BPVII. He is going to make the attempt with a relatively small crew of six.

    Spindrift Racing also have their eyes on the prize and are going to go on standby around the same time on the specially modified Spindrift 2 which is now sporting a new mast and various tweaks to enable the boat to be sailed by less crew.
