Spindrift racing ready to fly on Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour - published on May 26, 2015

The future of sailing is, quite literally, flying. The catamarans that soared above the waves in the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco have taken the sailing world by storm. The boats have revolutionised sailing technology and competition, giving rise to the creation of new classes.

The GC32 is one such class, a 10m one-design catamaran which can “take off” in wind speeds of just 8 knots. The carbon-fibre dragonfly has already established its place in regattas around the world, both in costal venues and on some of Europe’s most beautiful lakes. Multihull experts Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard and their Spindrift racing team are passionate about innovation and elite international competition, and have decided to join the GC32 Racing Tour 2015.
