    Groupama 3 Rips Miami To New York Record
    June 6 - New York City

    Frenchman Frank Cammas and crew sailed his new 105-ft trimaran Groupama 3 from Miami to New York in just 1 day, 11 hours, an average of 26.77 knots.


    Steve Fossett and crew had averaged 17.57 knots when they set the previous record with the catamaran Playstation.

    Next up for Groupama is an assault on the Atlantic record from New York to Cape Lizard in England, the record for which is currently held by Bruno Peyron and the maxi cat Orange II. Cammas and Groupama will have to average almost 29 knots for four days to beat that record.
