Whilst a number of the record 23 yacht fleet are still racing, none of them can better Teasing Machine's corrected time under IRC.

Teasing Machine is the smallest yacht to win the RORC Transatlantic Trophy, which has been previously won by yachts in the Maxi Class.

Teasing Machine tactician Laurent Pages and navigator Jean-Luc Nelias form a formidable partnership.

The Frenchmen took the same roles for skipper Franck Cammas winning the 2011-12 Volvo Ocean Race, and Nelias won this year's Transat Jacques Vabre on Sodebo Ultim with Thomas Colville, smashing the race record.
