Fastnet Record, BANKED!

And the name is Peyron, Loïck Peyron…!
 
Having covered the 608 nautical mile course from Cowes to Plymouth via Ireland, in a trifle one day 8 hours and 48 minutes, the skipper of the 140ft “géant” did a swift about turn; picked up photographer Christophe Launay and headed off back to home port, Lorient. 
 
Enroute, the Banq’ Pop’ monster cruised past the Figaro soloists, including BP’s little sister, sailed by Jeanne Grégoire. “Good luck Jeanne!” the crew encouraged. 

Breeze on and it was all action stations, “man your handles” as the BP5 Space Craft turned BP Gym!

Into the early hours the night train blew, the men in yellow taking turns to drive the bus and rest in shelter. 
 
Energy Team AC45 or more record breaking with BP5? 
What’s next double-agent Peyron?
