After setting out from Yokohama in Japan on 29th May, Olivier de Kersauson and his crew of eight took 13 days 22 hours 38 minutes and 28 secs to carry out the 4482 miles of the voyage. So having already smashed Steve Fossett's record from East to West, the Capgemini/Schneider Electric team have now snatched away Bruno Peyron's record from West to East.
