Francis Joyon capsized his trimaran IDEC this morning shortly after starting his record attempt. He was about 90 miles into the attempt in 25 kt winds when a squal hit him. There is a report on TDS for those interested in more of the story.

so if you stuff a 100 foot trimaran, that's a long way to fall from the steering wheel...

I wonder how many close calls like this they get in a crossing?
Does not look like a party.
