Giovanni Soldini and Maserati Multi 70’s crew crossed the finish line off La Rochelle today April 16th at 2:21:42 GMT (4:21:42 Italian time), conquering a new record: 239 miles from Plymouth (UK) to La Rochelle (FR) in 12 hours, 15 minutes and 21 seconds. The Italian Team’s record is almost 2 hours shorter than the previous time, set by Lloyd Thornburg and Brian Thompson aboard Phaedo3 in 2015, of 14 hours, 5 minutes and 20 seconds.
The record is still waiting the World Sailing Speed Record Council’s ratification.
Aboard Maserati Multi 70, Giovanni Soldini sailed with Giulio Bertelli, Guido Broggi, Carlos Hernandez Robayna, Oliver Herrera Perez and Matteo Soldini.
