Sodeb'o did it!

Enough serious stuff - quick news flash!

Remember the enormous trimaran I mentioned seeing weekend before last?

Well, that was the boat on which the singlehanded trans-atlantic record just got broken!

Less than 6 days. WOW.

Wonder how long it's going to take SailMag.com to figure out that there was no "and crew". How'd that get past the fact-checkers? I know, I know, I make mistakes a-plenty here, but I'm just some nobody blogger, y'know.

Anyways. Very very cool to have seen the beast with my own two eyes!

And in the meantime, the captain and crew of the schooner Issuma continue their far more leisurely trip the other way - taking their time with a solid shakedown cruise before they head out to sea.
