MacArthur to lose her record?

comment on the article

Dame Ellen believes her round-the-world record is about to go. Technically it should do with both Joyon and Colville boasting longer and potentially faster boats.

But you never know. Do you thing either or both will smash the 71 day mark?

She and Mark Turner are hinting that she would make an attempt to regain it, should it be broken.

Now that's a prospect that gets the pulse racing.

Do you think she could go on to regain the record if it's broken?

Technologically she should have an improved boat by 2010 so why not.

Let us know what you think...

One thing for sure... not a lot of risk from Bullimore's campaign!
