Owners of MOD70 hull no5 revealed
The mysterious MOD70 #05 is to be lauched in Lorient in January 2012. This is the flagship project of Spindrift racing, a new company created by Yann Guichard and managed by Léo Lucet.
Given his proven sailing experience at the Olympic Games and at the helm of offshore racing trimarans, Guichard has decided to create and run a company focused on multihulls in order to support and implement international sailing projects.
Based in Saint Philibert, in the Bay of Quiberon, the Spindrift racing team is managed by Léo Lucet, a talented sailor now specialises in managing, coordinating and overseeing all logistical aspects of large scale international projects. He has the required expertise and skills to turn Spindrift racing and its business partners' ambitions into reality.
The MOD70 N°05 will be lauched in January 2012 and will head to her homeport of La Trinité sur Mer. The new boat's characteristics match Spindrift Racing's values perfectly: high standards in terms of modernity and performance, reliability and durability. As the MOD70 is about to become the boat of reference for the next 10 years, of being associated with such an innovative project represents a fantastic opportunity for a young company like Spindrift racing.
The upcoming Tour will also represent a springboard for Yann Guichard and his team, bringing high visibility to the boat. The Multi One Championship will comprise a European Tour, World Tour and Ocean Race with in-shore races held in major capital cities.
Several companies are currently in discussion with Spindrift racing to join the MOD70 N°05 project. The complementary skills of Yann Guichard and Léo Lucet and the fact that the construction of the boat is advancing apace are strong arguments to join this new challenge.
In future, Spindrift racing will also play an advisory and supporting role for any ambitious multihull project for all sporting and technical aspects with victory as a final common goal.
