“Pretty intense!” was Giovanni Soldini’s description of Maserati Multi70’s return passage from Malta to La Spezia as he jumped ashore at 11.00 this morning. Winds were fresh throughout and the sailing was fast and challenging. Both boat and crew are safe and sound, however. Their return marks the start of a short but intense spell in the yard during which Maserati Multi70 will be tuned in preparation for her departure for Lanzarote from where the RORC Transatlantic Race starts on November 26.
The scheduled work includes a review of the hydraulic rams, a sail change, the installation of the new port L-foil to allow the trimaran to fly on that side at least, the completion of the foil brace and a check of the onboard instrumentation.
Maserati Multi70 is scheduled to leave the Picchiotti yard on November 8 and will make her way straight to the Canary Islands.
