Something new for the MOD 70s

Something new for the MOD 70s

The MOD 70 class has had its day... There is no longer a circuit for these boats. Some of them were greatly modified for the Rhum (Gitana and Musadam Oman Sail), whilst others seem to be on stand-by (Spindrift Racing and Paprec Recyclage), and others have finally left for different shores.

The n°1 in the class has left for a round the world trip to assess the state of the sea’s pollution (see page 10), and the former Foncia has just returned to the West Indies and the famous Team Phaedo (the one with the orange Gunboat...). Phaedo 3’s first race was a real success, as the trimaran shattered the Caribbean 600 record by more than 6 hours, with a time of 1 day and 9 hours for the race. It must be mentioned that the owner, Lloyd Thornburg commandeered the services of Michel Desjoyeaux and Brian Thompson, which helped a bit...

This is a boat which should give its little playmates something to think about in the coming races...

Here is the video of the Caribbean 600. Enjoy!
