Sailor breaks round the world record

December 27, 2016

French sailor Thomas Coville has smashed the record for sailing around the world single-handed without stopping.

The 48-year-old finished in only 49 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes and 38 seconds.

This was 8 days quicker than the previous record.

Coville set off from Brest in France on 6 November. He slept for only 3 hours at a time.

Coville had made four previous attempts to break the previous record.
