Skippered by Frenchman Loick Peyron with a crew of 13, they sailed non-stop on the 40-meter Banque Populaire V around the world in an incredible 45 days 42 minutes 13 hours 53 seconds, beating all existing records. The crew was honored this week in Paris with the Jules Verne Trophy, which was first awarded in 1994 to the crew of ‘Commodore Explorer’ when they sailed around the world in a few hours less than 80 days.
