MacArthur on standby again

Ellen MacArthur is currently out boat testing with the 75ft trimaran B&Q in Lorient, France, in preparation for their crewed attempt on the 284 mile Record SNSM (St Nazaire to St Malo). “The present forecast indicates a Monday afternoon (2.5.05) departure from Lorient, crossing the line at St Nazaire when the south-westerly breeze fills in overnight on Monday,” said Ellen.
