Departed: Francois Gabart / Macif Tri Solo Round the World record attempt

Photo & video: Macif Course au Large. Francois Gabart departed on board Macif Max Tri for his Solo Round the World record attempt.
Current record is held by Thomas Coville: 49 days 3 hours 7 minutes and 38 seconds,   obtained past Dec 25 2016,

Francois aside being an offshore multihull nuts, like all these crazy French Ocean Crossing Kamikazes!  is also a great small cat racer, Tornado, F18 and A-Class.

Macif Trimaran  has a traditional foiling conf with amas J boards and T Rudders. We consulted with Francois once on the use of a central T and he replied Macif doesn't features one.
