Just under 24 hours after the start of the RORC Transatlantic Race, begun yesterday at 12.00 UTC, Maserati Multi 70 continues sailing in first position, at 2635 miles from the arrival.
The first day was very intense for Giovanni Soldini and his crew: Maserati Multi 70 and PowerPlay, the English MOD 70 skippered by Ned Collier Wakefield, were never more than 3 miles away from each other, always sailing upwind.
During the morning today, the close distance duel between the two competing multihulls continues: Maserati Multi 70 is responding very well to the light air conditions, with which PowerPlay, lighter and with less wet surface, is normally advantaged. Continuing towards the finish line, the wind will turn North and the boats will reach the Trade Winds, with which Maserati Multi 70 will be able to express its full potential.
