“A team focused on performance„
Based in the south of Brittany, the racing stable Spindrift racing was founded by Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard in 2011. Spindrift racing runs six boats for four complementary projects: a trimaran MOD70 (Spindrift), a Decision 35 catamaran (Ladycat powered by Spindrift racing), two trimarans Diam 24, a GC32 foiling catamaran and the 40 metre maxi-trimaran (Spindrift 2).
  • MAXI Spindrift 2

    131 foot trimaran for crewed racing that would be reliable and versatile enough to be competitive in a mixed programme combining transatlantic and around-the-world races.

  • D35 Ladycat

    Technologically advanced by Swiss engineers sharpened by the technical constraints and requirements of the America’s Cup, the D35 attracts lovers of speed and battles the world over.

  • Diam 24

    Light, sporty, powerful, winged and designed to race with three or four people on board. The Diam 24OD is fast in light winds and confident in stronger breeze.

  • GC32 Spindrift

    The latest member of the Spindrift racing family is the GC32, a one-design catamaran capable of flying over the water in wind speeds of just 10 knots, with peak speeds of up to 35 knots.

  • MOD70 Spindrift

    The brainchild of the VPLP architecture firm (Vincent Lauriot-Prévost / Marc Van Peteghem), the one-design MOD70s are 10 feet longer (21.20 metres) than the old ORMA 60’ prototypes, and are also narrower. Forever at the forefront, Spindrift racing’s sailors were quick to make their mark in this one-design trimaran, claiming a number of victories and podium finishes.
