French term or phrase: en toutes lettres
Photo caption (no photo available) of the sailing team Bayer en France after breaking the distance record for 24 hours on the Atlantic.
"Le recorde inscrit en toutes "lettres" sur l'équipe bayer en France l'année dernière".
Since I don't have the photo, it's difficult to translate the caption. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Explanation:
'en toutes lettres' usually means 'in writing', as opposed to 'in figures', or 'in full' vs 'in abbreviated form', which I would assume is the case here...
