OFFICIAL CLOTHING

SUPPLIER

SPINDRIFT RACING TEAM

In July 2013, Marinepool proudly

announced a new and exciting 3 year

partnership with Spindrift Racing as

the “Official Clothing Supplier” of the

high profile French/Swiss multihull

racing project.

Spindrift Racing Team, based in

La Trinité-sur-Mer (FRA), will exclusively

use Marinepool performance

sailing clothing and leisure

wear across all three 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.

The acquisition of the maxi trimaran

Spindrift 2 opens up new

opportunities for the Spindrift racing

stable in 2013. After the christening

ceremony and presentation of the

legendary yacht in her breath taking

new black-white-gold design, the

giant multihull ran through a series of

training sessions off the French coast

before she was ready to live up to

her ambitions. The kick-off of her first

race was the Rolex Fastnet Race in

August 2013 that the maxi trimaran

won in 38 h 53 min and 58 sec.

Through this long-term collaboration,

Marinepool and Spindrift will work

closely 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.
