Fresh off setting a new Monaco to Porto Cervo record (pending ratification), Lloyd Thornburg’s MOD 70 Phaedo³ has blasted across the start line of RORC Transatlantic race with some very interesting competition including Giovani Soldini’s MOD70, Maserati, who’s hoping to foil as well as sail across the Atlantic.
It will be an interesting race for both boats to see how they fare against each other.
The navigators have so far predicted a longer race than last year, maybe a 7 day crossing to Grenada.
And in addition to the regular crew, on-board photographer Kelvin Trautman is hopefully going to be posting some images (like this little clip from the pre-start) during the crossing. So stay tuned.
And be sure to download the race tracker here.
