Nice trimaran, man

I don't know much about sailing, but from what I can gather, this is the Idec Trimaran [site in French] that yachtsman Francis Joyon used to break the solo circumnavigation record last year. (The record was broken again by 29-year-old Ellen MacArthur earlier this year.)

Based on a rough translation of an online post from his site [Info du Jour], it appears he's waiting for a favorable window to take another stab at the trans-Atlantic record, while MacArthur also has her eye on the same goal.

I snapped this photo late last week at the marina in front of the World Financial Center.
