Always at the cutting edge of research, the Gitana Team didn’t hesitate to choose a radical option for the last Route du Rhum, by equipping its Mod 70 with T-shaped rudders, which allowed Sébastien Josse to win a nice 3rd place, faced with much bigger competitors. Since then, the trimaran has been equipped with asymmetric foils and new rudders, and the Multi 70 Edmond de Rothschild has become a real floating, and even flying, laboratory.

Because the aim is clearly to launch into the construction of a new giant of the seas, which should measure between 31 and 35 meters, and allow fully crewed sailing around the world as well as being able to win a singlehanded transat. A multihull equipped with foils which should be at the cutting edge of technology. Construction is planned to start at the end of 2015, for a launch in the middle of 2017.
