LATEST NEWS: SPINDRIFT 2 ABANDONS ROUND IRELAND RECORD ATTEMPT DUE TO BAD WEATHER

 The legendary maxi trimaran Spindrift 2, the largest racing trimaran ever built (ex Banque Populaire V; LOA: 131ft, Beam: 75 ft, Mast: 137ft, Disp: 20.5T) is on its way from its Brittany base ‘La Trinite sur Mer’ to attempt to break the Round Ireland Speed Record currently held by MOD70 ‘Phaedo 3’ in  36 hours and 52 minutes, approximately 1h 45mns faster than the previous record.

The weather conditions are lining up nicely in the next 24h to 72h with a low pressure system centered on Ireland generating a perfect anti-clockwise system to beat the record.
