Hong Kong to London

The maxi-catamaran in the colours of the LCF Rothschild Group was relaunched yesterday, Tuesday 5th August, in Hong Kong. After over a month on the hard and around 2 weeks’ refit, Gitana 13 is all set to go on this last challenge in their 2008 record campaign: the Tea Route; 15,000 miles to cover from Hong Kong to London, passing via the Sunda Strait and then leaving the Cape of Good Hope to starboard. Lionel Lemonchois and his nine crewmen will set off on this rather atypical course in the coming days.
