    A new record has been set on the Cowes Dinard route by Lending Club Sailing who have chartered the former Banque Populaire VII trimaran for a crewed record program.

    The average speed for the crossing was 26.35 knots the new record time (yet to be ratified) is 5h 14 mins and 7 seconds. This new record improves the reference time by 9 minutes and 25 seconds. The record time was previously held by the maxi cat Maiden.

    I wish that we could have a register of maxi tris that are on standby for record runs, or just where they are at any particular time.
    I would have made the effort to go and watch her set off.
    Once we knew where a boat was stationed, we could keep an eye on it with AIS and see when she started her run
    Surely this would be good PR for their sponsors too?
