August saw two world records shattered by Pascal Bidegorry and his crew aboard 40 metre catamaran Banque Populaire V. Their eastbound Atlantic crossing from New York to the Lizard Point, Cornwall, took just 3 days, 15 hours, 25 minutes and 48 seconds, beating Groupama 3's previous record by more than 12.5 hours. They also smashed the 24-hour record, previously set at 794 miles, when they sailed an astounding 907 miles in 24 hours! Benoit Stichelbaut was there to capture the action.
