MOD70s, RORC Transat 2016: Phaedo 3 floating mode wins over Maserati



RORC Transat 2016 might well be the first Oceanic race to match a foiler MOD70 (handicapped though with one ama equipped with flying foils) vs a traditional floating one.

The additional speed obtained by Maserati when sailing port ama down was not enough to overcome Phaedo 3 navigation and also great speed.Loick Peyron talked about having foiling Ocean Crosing multis, and Giovanni Soldini & Maserati have made that statement a reality. With of course the initial design / setup work done by Gitana Team who transformed a MOD70 into a flying machine.Below offical results. More info at rorctransatlantic.rorc.org/
