First flights off Lorient

A genuine test laboratory, in the space of six months the Multi70 Edmond de Rothschild has become the perfect guinea pig for Gitana Team’s design office.
After an initial research phase involving T-foil rudders, which was validated by Sébastien Josse’s third place in the Route du Rhum 2014, it’s now time for the second phase of development.
Equipped with asymmetric foils (L-foil to port and C-foil to starboard) and new, more substantial T-foil rudders, the 2015 version of the trimaran fitted out by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild is undergoing her first sea trials offshore of Lorient; the first flights in real conditions."
