    Here are some great shots of the boat as it nearly cuts in half the un-official round Antigua record:
    From the front page of SA:
    The Michel Desjoyeaux-led MOD 70 crew of Lloyd Thornburg’s Phaedo^3 was loosely aware of the Farr 115 Sojana’s long-standing 4h37m43s ’round Antigua record when they went out for their first practice sail today; they put the pedal down on the trimaran and shattered it to pieces. Unofficially, the new record is 2h44m15s, and the top speed the crew remembers seeing is somewhere around 35 knots…unofficially.
    Big thanks to Team Phaedo/Ocean Images for the beautiful aerial shots; here’s another one of her coming right at ya!

    Phaedo^3

    From Scuttlebutt:
    (February 24, 2015; Day 2) – Lloyd Thornburg’s MOD 70 Phaedo³ finished the 600-mile RORC Caribbean 600 in Antigua at 20:35:30 AST in an elapsed time of 33 hours, 35 minutes, 30 seconds, smashing the Multihull record by 6 hours, 35 minutes and 35 seconds which had held since the inaugural race in 2009. For the last six editions the record set by John Burnie and Claude Thelier on ORMA 60 trimaran, Region Guadeloupe (40 hours 11 mins 5 secs) had remained unbeaten. Click headline for full report.

    Another record smashed by Phaedo3:

    Back in March 2003, Steve Fossett set a record for sailing around the island of St Maarten. He circumnavigated the island in 2 hours 4 minutes and 36 seconds. It has remained unbroken until today. Lloyd Thornburg and his crew aboard Phaedo3, whilst training for the up coming regatta, Les Voiles de St Barth, decided to see if they could challenge this record. Phaedo3 had some official help from Alfred Koolen and Stuart Knaggs of the St Martin Yacht Club who set up an official start line and timing. Lloyd along with his crew of Brian Thompson, Miles Seddon, Warren Fitgerald, Sam Bason, Sam Goodchild, Fraser Brown and Paul Allen broke this record and set a new time of 1 hour, 30 minutes and 19 seconds.
