Marinepool teams up with Spindrift Racing – “Official Clothing Supplier” of the multihull project. Marinepool proudly announces the 3 year partnership with Spindrift Racing as the “Official Clothing Supplier” of the high profile French/Swiss multihull racing project. The Spindrift Racing Team, based in La Trinité-sur-Mer (FRA), will exclusively use Marinepool performance sailing clothing and leisure wear across all 3 Spindrift managed sailing projects: Ladycat D35, skippered by Dona Bertarelli and a top contender in all major competitions on Lake Geneva; Spindrift MOD70, winner of the 2012 Multi One Design Championship; and the Maxi trimaran Spindrift 2 (formerly known as Banque Populaire V), recently acquired to conquer new records.
After today´s christening ceremony and presentation of Spindrift 2 in her new colours, the giant multihull will be run through a series of training sessions off the French coast before the kick-off of its first race: the Rolex Fastnet Race in August where it is clearly one of the favorites for line honours.
Through this long-term collaboration, Marinepool and Spindrift will closely work together in the optimization of Marinepool´s performance sailing clothing range and the development of new offshore products tested by Yann Guichard, one of the most experienced skippers in multihull ocean racing and his crew.
