Open de Versoix : Dona Bertarelli prête pour le deuxième round du D35 Trophy 2015
  • Décision 35
21 mai 2015

This weekend, Ladycat powered by Spindrift racing will compete in the Open de Versoix, the second Grand Prix in the D35 Trophy 2015. A fortnight after the opening event in Geneva, the fleet will head northwards around Lake Geneva for two days of regattas organised by Club Nautique de Versoix.

Dona Bertarelli will take the helm of the catamaran on Lake Geneva, where she will face a particularly strong field, as will be the case throughout the entire 2015 D35 season. Team Tilt started the season in good form, with a well-deserved win in Geneva on May 10th.

Spindrift racing, meanwhile, is aiming to finish on the podium, thus improving on its result in the Grand Prix d’Ouverture, in which the team finished fourth, just three points behind Zen Too. Weather forecasters are predicting wind and sun for the weekend, ideal conditions for a thrilling battle.
