Ladycat

With continued success in the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, Ladycat powered by Spindrift racing will once again be present at this legendary Swiss event in 2018, against ever stronger competition. In 2010 Dona Bertarelli was the first woman to win the event and her team continued this winning streak with the top podium position in 2014 and 2016, respectively.

A Strong and Graceful Lemanique boat

The 2018 edition will be a special event for the team, as if they secure their third win in five years, Spindrift will be able to keep the trophy in perpetuity. But the Bol remains a difficult race and the crew has planned a number of training sessions on Lake Geneva to hone their techniques, including taking part in the Geneva Rolle Geneva.

Designed in Switzerland using the latest innovative technology, this 35-foot sports catamaran has an exceptional power to weight ratio and can reach speeds of 30 knots (50 km/h).

The D35 has, for many years, attracted foiling sailors from around the world who come to race these demanding small boats in the excellent conditions on Lac Leman as well as take part in grand prix events and endurance races, such as the renowned Bol d’Or Mirabaud.
