Phaedo3 achieved the fastest elapsed time in the Transatlantic Race 2015, averaging more than 600 miles a day for four days during the 2,800-mile run from Rhode Island to England.

The final boats are still making their way to Cowes, England, wrapping up Transatlantic Race 2015.

First to cross was the MOD 70 trimaran Phaedo3, which covered the 2,800-mile run from Newport, R.I., in 7 days, 2 hours, 4 minutes and 9 seconds. No wonder they’re exhausted.

In spite of being becalmed for nearly two days early in the race, Phaedo3crossed the finish line off the southwest coast of England to record the fastest elapsed time in the Transatlantic Race.

Once the wind filled in, the trimaran averaged more than 600 miles a day for four days with a top speed of 41.2 knots.

Whew!
