Thomas Coville has improved the solo multihull record previously held by Francis Joyon by more than eight days! The new record is 49 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes and 38 seconds (yet to be ratified). The record was set on Coville's latest trimaran Sodebo Ultime. Sodebo Ultime was built reusing some parts of the Original Geronimo the original crossbeams reused and strengthened combined with new fronts on the floats and a completely new main hull.

While the Stransky's were in Melbourne attending the World Sailing Cup so their daughter Mara could compete in the Laser dinghies I visited onboard their beautiful catamaran "Fantasia". It's a lovely performance cruising catamaran and I've compiled some notes on the boat on the linked page. Andrew is offering building plans for the "Seven Seas 50" and support through the construction process. He also still has hull moulds available to speed the building process.
