Maserati Multi 70 is 2000 miles away from Hong Kong: the trimaran’s delivery continues in the Pacific, riddled with plastic debris. Giovanni Soldini explains: «We keep seeing floating objects whizzing by. Last night something hit a rudder, but our fuse system worked perfectly and we were able to put it back in use with no damage. Yesterday we also bumped into a big plastic sheet, fortunately we were able to pull it on board: it’s one less plastic piece in the ocean, but there are so many. It’s really scary to see the state the sea is in, when the plastic has been introduced only a few decades ago».
«Aboard Maserati Multi 70 everything is great, except the lack of energy in rainy days. Fortunately as soon as the sun comes out our Solbian solar panels give us so much energy: it’s like having a small generator that doesn’t use a drop of fuel, almost like magic!»
