    Geronimo launches its bid for the 2004 Jules Verne Trophy

    The giant trimaran bearing the colors of Schneider Electric and Cap Gemini crossed the starting line between the Lizard and Ouessant (France) on the evening of Sunday February 8th, 2004 at 21 minutes and 22 seconds past 8 Olivier de Kersauson and his crew are seeking to beat the record for sailing round the world set by Bruno Peyron in 2002: 64 days, 8 hours, 37 minutes and 24 seconds. This means French boat will have to cross that line again before April 13th at 57 minutes and 46 seconds past 4 am.
    Like Steve Fossett in Cheyenne, which left on January 7th at 5.10 am GMT, Geronimo will have to deal with only moderate winds due to the anticyclones.
