The flying trimaran managed to put significant distance between herself and her main rivals, Actual Ultim and Sodebo Ultim 3, with fourth place in real time going to Argo, leader of the MOCRA class. As a bonus, the record for the event was broken – this now stands at one day, 9 hours, 14 minutes and 58 seconds. For the skippers often used to managing their machines alone or two-handed, racing with a crew at hand is a new and very rewarding experience – allowing them sometimes to discover the full potential of their trimarans.
