Prepping for The Middle Sea Race Start

posted in: Speed Sailing Record | 0

While the much anticipated first meeting between Phaedo³ and Maserati Multi70, Giovani Soldini’s “foiling” MOD70 trimaran is scheduled to take place at the start of the Rolex Middle Sea Race on Saturday in Malta, Soldini and company have their hands full since they hit a submergeged object on their way to the start a few days ago.

According to published reports, “Maserati‘s starboard rudder, rudder tubes, and one of the sectors attached to the rudder arm were all completely destroyed in the incident. Despite the severity of the damage, however, Maserati Multi70’s crew managed sail the craft safely and unaided into the Maltese port and they are working feverishly to repair the damage”

Meanwhile, Lloyd Thornburg, Brian Thompson, and the rest of the crew of Phaedo³ have been enjoying their practice days in anticipation of what should be an exciting race.
