V and B : New Record for the distance sailed in 24 hours in Class40 !

© Easy Ride


Maxime Sorel  and  Antoine Carpentier are really impressive on the Transat Jacques Vabre !

Following the repair of a 1 meter crack on a watertight bulkhead,  the V and B duet  decided to  fight to come-back at the head of the fleet. And they are successful ! They are now second, 26nm behind the leader  Imerys (Phil Sharp and Pablo Santurde) and they also broke the record of the distance sailed in 24 hours in Class40 !

They indeed  covered the distance of 377,7  nm between Tuesday November 9th at 8h30 (french time) and Friday November 10th (8h30) at the average speed of  15,7 knots.

The previous record had been held  by Tales 2, skipped par Gonzalo Botin (and Pablo Santurde !) since July 2016 the 16th. They covered  373.3 nm at the average speed of 15.56 knots during the Quebec Saint Malo Race.

This Mach40.3 launched in 2015 proves, with this new record, that the new generation Class40s are very close to the old generation Imocas (2007) regarding the perfomances !
