Multihull Boat Show: an exceptional edition
We can never say it enough: those of you who didn’t come to the International Multihull Boat Show were wrong.
And for the record, note that as in previous years, a regatta was organised for the exhibitors. Faithful readers know that the Multihulls World crew won (brilliantly) the first edition of this Multihull Cup. Last year, the Leopard crew took advantage of our withdrawal to win. This year, the organizers had invited Christian Campi’s pirogues to the show, so that the visitors could discover the multihull’s origins. And we raced on these pirogues, using paddles. Once again this year, the Multihulls World crew did well, even though we only finished on the third step of the podium, the fault of a paddle smuggled out of the USA which was finally not as effective as all that. Lagoon always chases victory in this competition, and once again this year, they came up against a stronger crew. They finished second. And the winners were, finally, the Swiss Catamaran crew. After having fought hard in each of the previous editions, they finally won, but after having called on crew...from the America’s Cup! Finally, and to cap it all, note that a women’s regatta was also organised, and the Multihulls World/Léopard Catamarans crew easily and brilliantly won.
See you next year for the sixth edition!
