SeaSailSurfer of July 2008 : Thomas Coville

New holder of the transatlantic record : At the helm of the giant trimarna Sodeb’O, Thomas Coville has beaten the Solo Transatlantic record. In 5 days 19 hours and 29 minutes, he makes better than Francis Joyon by 7 hours and a half.

Multihuls live a new aera. 50 feet ones are growing. 60’ ones have disappeared. Now multihulls go bigger with Franck Cammas and Pascal Bidegorry girants for crew records. In the single handing scene, Francis Joyon and Thomas Coville show the way of the futures generations of trimarans. From New York to Cape Lizard, Coville has done better than Joyon. He has now to do better around the world…
