Looks like he's had some reasonably unfavourable winds the last few days, down to a 'meagre' 500 or so miles/day and currently heading south, a long long way south...

He is passing south of NZ now. Some 600 nautical miles to the south doing a mere 33 knots. He left France only three weeks ago!

And to the engineers who designed the boat and to the people who built it.

 

He is now sailing into the western hemisphere doing 38 knots. That is pretty close to the top speed of the vessel I did my military service on and we had three gas turbines powering us along. Cold war stuff for the Baltic Sea.

Anyone got a link that works, every time I've tried googling this I get websites that don't load or do random stuff (and that is before I try translating them...)
