M32

Latest member of Spindrift racing family, the M32 is a 32 ft one-design catamaran for close-contact racing. The state-of-the-art design makes the boat light and sturdy. The boat has a simple set-up, with a mainsail and a gennaker. The sails are manoeuvred by a four to five-man crew.

One-design racing places the emphasis on the sailors' skills. Yann Guichard and his crew were the only French sailors to have been invited to compete in last year's World Match Racing Tour, which used catamarans for the first time. For their first participation, they reached the 4th place of the leaderboard 2016.

Once again this year, they are determined to showcase their experience in multihull regattas and face an elite field with a lot of experience in match racing.

Each duel lasts only a few minutes and is a test of the sailors' tactics and coordination, offering an exciting challenge for Yann Guichard and his crew, who know each other inside out, having sailed together for many years.

"The M32 is a lightweight, accessible sailing boat," explained M32 Spindrift skipper Yann Guichard. "The clean design allows you to focus very quickly on the race and the highly tactical nature of match racing. It's something I experienced in the AC45s in the America's Cup World Series (2011-2012), and I'm excited to repeat that experience this year in the World Match Racing Tour."
