Coville launches around-the-world record attempt

Frenchman Thomas Coville has set off from the port of Brest in his bid to break the around-the-world solo sailing record.
On his Sodebo trimaran, Coville needs to beat countryman Francis Joyon's record, who three years ago finished the circumnavigation in 57 days, 13 hours, 35 minutes, 6 seconds _ more than 14 days faster than Ellen Macarthur's 2005 journey.
Two years ago, Coville failed in his attempt to break the record, finishing in more than 59 days.
