Adrien
World record bettered by 29 days! Adrien is a slender, hyper-performance, 26m monohull optimised for sustained upwind conditions, built in light-alloy at the Gamelan boatyard in 2002. On 11th March 2004 she passed the finishing line at Sables d’Olonne after 122 days, 14 hours, 3 minutes and 49 seconds single-handed sailing.
After a fine-tuning period, Jean-Luc Van Den Heede had made his assault on the round the world against-the-wind record and took it at the fourth attempt. Philippe Monnet, the previous holder of the precious record, had a few years previously taken 151 days, 19 hours. Not resting on his laurels, a few months later VDH set up a new record time of 12h-1min-31sec for a solo Channel crossing from Cowes to Dinard.

Adrien can also perform well in downwind conditions !
