Congratulations to Mikael Ryking and his co-skipper Irina Gracheva for their great achievement. The two monohull sailors sailed within 13 days, 5 hours and 19 minutes from Bermuda to Plymouth (2870 miles) with the EFOY COMFORT on board. World record!
"We are very pleased with the EFOY fuel cell. It simply runs smooth and silently and we didn’t need to charge our batteries at any time with the diesel engine during the 2870 nautical miles passage that took us 13 days to complete. We had some seriously challenging weather with 45 knots of wind on average for three days in a row. The sea grows wild and we were knocked down with mast and sails in the sea at two occasions. But the EFOY fuel cell continued as before to deliver power to the onboard electronics. Amazing! This is part of the future.” Mikael Ryking, skipper of Talanta
