Hydros team breaks Blue Ribbon record with l’Hydroptère.ch
Yesterday afternoon, Hydros broke the Blue Ribbon Lake Geneva record, part of the SYZ & CO Leman Sailing Speed Records, by crossing the lake (Geneva (Port Noir) - le Bouveret - Geneva) in 4 hours and 45 minutes (still subject to the approval of the Cercle de la Voile de la Société Nautique de Genève – the yacht club of the Geneva Nautical Society).

The flying boat l’Hydroptère.ch, piloted by Daniel Schmäh, broke yesterday the Blue Ribbon record between Port Noir and le Bouveret, with a theoretical distance of 66.5 nautical miles (123 kilometers). It thus beat the time set by Philippe Cardis on Décision 35 in 2007 by eight minutes.
