The Spindrift 2 team tried out a trimaran for the first time, which had been rebuilt and optimisedfor new records over the winter. The test took place in the waters of the Bay of Biscay. Helmsmen Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard were pleased with the season opener. "You should have seen the smiles on the faces when we set the first sail... We quickly got up to 35 knots," said Bertarelli. This week, the Spindrift team faces its first race after a long winter on Lake Geneva.
