  • The Launch Of A New Maxi Tri Circuit

    The Multi One Championship programme, composed of offshore and inshore crewed races solely, includes three main concepts – the Ocean Race (a transatlantic race), the European Tour and the Ocean World Tour. The first season will kick off in July 2012 with an Ocean Race to be announced shortly, and will be followed by the first European Tour for this class – this event will be organised in collaboration with OC ThirdPole.

    Multihull racing continues to move towards centre stage in the professional sailing world, and in the offshore arena Multi One Design is the leading development, with 5 new boats under construction. Up to 10 boats are expected to be competing by 2013 and already four leading racing teams have committed to the circuit – Foncia (Michel Desjoyeaux), Veolia Environnement (Roland Jourdain), Edmond de Rothschild Group (Gitana Team) and Multi One Attitude (Steve Ravussin).

    4 Teams have sign on thus far

    “To get the best skippers and best sailing teams on the planet and to offer the best race organisation is Multi One Design‟s primary ambition. Mark Turner and Rémi Duchemin‟s OC Thirdpole is recognised and renowned as one of the most effective companies in the sailing world, especially when it comes to organising events. The international dimension that they will bring to the project is a major asset and we are therefore delighted to be working together on the European Tour for 2012 and 2013. It will most certainly be the beginning of a long joint venture,” commented Marco Simeoni, President of Multi One Design SA. “The MOD 70 circuit aims to develop a state of the art communications‟ platform, particularly in terms of onboard technology. The concept of multihull combined with the „one-design‟ is a real asset to develop this type of onboard technology. We are exactly on the same wavelength with! ! OC ThirdPole on that objective and we now jointly aim to position the MOD 70 circuit as a major international sporting event,” concluded Franck David, Executive Director of Multi One Design SA.
