MOD70, 2013 season and 2014-2016 Horizon


The inaugural MOD70 racing season was deemed a great success proving the potential of the one-design MOD70 Class and the full value of this innovative concept in the sailing world through the boat performance, reliability, the tight races and exciting events. Over 850'000 visitors followed the competition in the race village of the "Krys Ocean Race" and "MOD70 European Tour". Since the launch of the first MOD70, Race for Water, in March 2011, the circuit has generated an estimated 24 million Euro international media return.

2013 Competition Season

In the absence of a title sponsor for 2013, MOD and teams have opted on competing in events that include different classes.

The MOD70 fleet programme includes a European Tour in the "Route des Princes" next June and most likely the "Transat Jacques Vabre" race between Le Havre (France) and Itajai (Brazil) with scheduled start on the 3rd of November.

2014 – 2016 Horizon

It is important to note that the MOD70 fleet is growing with the launch of MOD70 nr.06 Virbac Paprec 70 (skippered by Jean-Pierre Dick) and the arrival of an American Team Orion Racing, which purchased MOD70 nr.02 (ex-Veolia Environnement) with Cam Lewis, regarded as one of the best multihull sailors in the USA, part of the team. A North-American team entry opens up new perspectives for the circuit.

With an international participation at the highest level composed of a minimum 7 teams, MOD's objective is now to actively work on the 2014-2016 circuit programme, with notably the second edition of the "Krys Ocean Race" (from Brest to New York). The first edition, with a finish during the Tonnerres de Brest, proved a great success and the second edition is soon to be announced.

The Multi One Design core principles, being a one-design MOD70 fleet, an international circuit, with inshore/offshore races and being an eco-responsible model, continue to be the benchmarks to which work continues with partners on developing the circuit from 2014.
