Yann Guichard’s Route du Rhum in motion design: a two-minute explanation!

Compare the boat’s speed with that of an animal or a world-famous theme-park ride, and you soon get a picture of just how fast it can go! We can also compare the size of the sails and the length of the course to things we are familiar with. Pictures speak louder than words, whatever your age.

This clip is not a torrent of figures that only sailing experts will understand, so sit back with your family, relax, and turn up the sound!
Watch this original animated film produced for kids and grown-ups by Spindrift racing and understand the magnitude of the challenge faced by Yann Guichard of sailing the world’s largest racing trimaran across the Atlantic single-handed.
