Maserati Multi 70 and Giovanni Soldini forced to give up the record


Giovanni Soldini and the Maserati Multi 70 team are forced to give up their attempt to break the Monaco-Porto Cervo record.

Soldini says on board: «As soon as we left Monaco, a rudder was released with 45 knots of wind and a lot of swell. Under these conditions, it is too dangerous to put it back into operation. We will evaluate whether to make a direct route to La Spezia or stop at an intermediate port. We will try again as soon as possible! ”

The Italian trimaran left Munich at 22:07:18 local time on March 13 to try to break the record of 7 hours, 53 minutes and 31 seconds set by Brian Thompson in 2016 aboard the MOD 70 Phaedo3.
