Maxi Trimaran Spindrift 2 coming to USA
Published on May 27th, 2014
The maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 left La Trinité-sur-Mer, France on May 26, heading to Newport, Rhode Island, expected to arrive within eight days. They will be on standby from the start of June, waiting for a favorable weather window to attempt to break the crewed North Atlantic record. Led by co-skippers Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard, they will seek to better the record the 40m trimaran had previously set as Banque Populaire 5 of 03:15:25:48 in August 2009.
