Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
Mach 2, 2012

Three and a half years after being launched in August 2008 and after her second attempt, the 131-foot maxi trimaran Banque Populaire V entered records' history on January 6, 2012 by taking the Jules Verne Trophy at the end of a navigation of 45 days 13 hours 42 minutes 53 seconds around the globe.

Emblematic of the fastest circumnavigation of the world by any type of yacht with no restrictions on the size of the crew, skipper Loick Peyron (FRA) and his crew completed this unprecedented exploit, covering 29,002 miles at an average speed of 26.51 knots.

And as amazing as this accomplishment was, condensing 45 days of the fastest sailing in the world into a three minute video is equally remarkable. Enjoy!
