Yann Guichard has finished.....

the 10th edition of the Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe in second position. After 8 days, 5 hours, 18 minutes and 46 seconds of racing, his maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 crossed the finish line in Pointe-à-Pitre today (Monday, November 10th) at 14:18:46 local time (18:18:46 UTC). The runner-up of this record-breaking transatlantic crossing finished 14h 10mn 14s behind the race winner, Loïck Peyron (Banque Populaire VII). Yann completed the official 3,542 nautical miles race at an average speed of 17,95 knots, although in reality travelled 4334 miles at an average speed of 21,96 knots!

The 40-year-old Spindrift 2 skipper has not only successfully crossed the Atlantic in a 40m trimaran, the largest ever to compete in this race, but has achieved a magnificent second-place finish. His performance has gained the plaudits of his peers and of the huge crowd that has gathered at Pointe-à-Pitre's main square, Place de la Victoire, where the atmosphere is incredible.

The result is a true reflection of Yann's tremendous efforts over the past eight days. Once again he has shown his immense competitive spirit and exemplary mental strength. This podium finish in Guadeloupe is also a fitting reward for the outstanding work put in by the entire Spindrift racing team over the past months. The team and its partners, Mirabaud, Genes-x and Zenith, are proud to have been part of another chapter in the legendary Route du Rhum.

Coming soon: first reactions from Yann Guichard when he reaches the Quai d'Honneur in Pointe-à-Pitre.
