Giovanni Soldini and team have completed RORC Transatlantic Race dash in 7 days, 8 hours, 44 minutes and 23 seconds
The RORC Transatlantic Race was a positive experience for Maserati Multi70 overall, proving an excellent test-bench for her ocean flying capabilities as Soldini confirmed: "The Trade Wind conditions that form, arriving here with a high pressure area and a not-too rough sea are ideal for getting a boat like ours to fly: we made an average of 24 knots with peaks of 40 and had one blistering day when we were powering along consistently at over 30 knots. We are very happy with everything we learned about flying, by using an L-foil in the open ocean. We’ve found a way to use it both when there’ s too much wind and wave, and in other more changeable conditions when it is possible to fly".
