Scuttlebutt Photos: Orange II Smashes RTW World Record

(Wednesday, March 16, 2005) Bruno Peyron and his 13-man crew have crossed the finish line at Ushant setting a new world speed record of 50 days, 16 hours, 20 minutes and 4 seconds, achieving an average speed of 22.2 knots. Not only have they broken Olivier de Kersauson's Jules Verne record by 12 days but have totally annihilated the outright record set by Steve Fossett and team aboard Cheyenne last year by seven days. - Sue Pelling/Yachting World, Complete story
