Aeroyacht will be in New York City to greet one of the greatest single-handed sailors in the world. Francis Joyon, is expected to arrive in New York City at Dennis Conner’s North Cove today with his extreme trimaran “IDEC.”
Joyon will be berthed in the marina for a week or longer as he waits for a weather window to challenge the Single-Handed Trans-Atlantic Record.
IDEC is 97 ft in length and one of the fastest ocean-going trimarans in the world. In 2008, Joyon and IDEC set a new Single-Handed Round the World Record of 57 days, 13 hours and 34 minutes, beating the previous record by 14 days.
