At 20 UTC, 8 hours after the start of the Cape2Rio, Maserati Multi 70 is sailing North West at 27.7 knots, with a couple dozens miles of advantage over the competitor LoveWater.
It wasn’t an easy start for Giovanni Soldini and his Team, who had to slow down for around twenty minutes at the start of the race for a technical problem. “We suffered damages to the foils’ pistons”, Soldini explains. “We were able to manage the situation and to make a jury-rig repair, we never had this problem before but we were able to catch up with our competitors and we’re confident that this will be a great race!”
