Single-handed Indian Ocean record for Charles Caudrelier (subject to certification)
This Sunday 28th January, around two days after rounding Cape Leeuwin, Charles Caudrelier and the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild crossed the longitude of the South-East Cape, the southernmost tip of Tasmania (Australia) at 1h03min and 10 seconds (French time) after 20 days 11 hours 33 minutes and 10 seconds of racing.

The leader of the Arkea Ultim Challenge - Brest is now sailing in the Pacific and to celebrate this new ocean in front of the bows of his five-arrowed giant, he has set the first record (currently being approved by the WSSRC) of his race: that of the Indian Ocean.   

Charles Caudrelier covered 6,113 miles between Cape Agulhas (South Africa) and the South-East Cape in 8 days 8 hours 20 minutes and 36 seconds, at an average speed of 30.7 knots. 

He has improved on the solo record held by Thomas Coville since 2016 by 3 hours 57 minutes. The absolute fastest time on this legendary stretch of the course remains the property of one crew, that of IDEC sport during its Jules Verne Trophy victory, also in 2016.
