(Brittany, France.)

The North Sea crossing from Lowestoft (UK) to IJmuiden (Netherlands) is sailed in a new record of 5 hours, 36 minutes and 18 seconds on 2nd of December last, 23 minutes faster than the old record. The ship was Delta LLoyd (see video), former winner of the Volvo race under the name ABN-AMRO I. It was crewed by an all-Dutch team, led by Captain Bouwe Bekking, who skippered Telefonica Blue (finished 2nd) in the last Volvo Round the World Race.
