Francis Joyon has shattered the Mauritius Route record

Francis Joyon has just beaten his own record set ten years ago in this stretch of the Route to the Indies referred to as the Mauritius Route and made it all look so easy. 19 days, 18 hours, 14 minutes and 45 seconds, or an improvement of 6 days and 10 hours in comparison to ten years ago. The Mauritius Route started from Port Louis in Brittany with part of the round the world route that Francis knows so well having sailed it many times both alone and with a crew. The route then took him up the Indian Ocean with all its difficulties to another Port Louis, this one being the capital of Mauritius.
