Winner of the 2012 Volvo Ocean Race and
Co-skipper of the MOD70 Musandam-Oman Sail for the 2013 Transat Jacques Vabre

« Yet again we realized how fantastic these boats are, they are really reliable in terms of the structure, we have huge confidence in them. We were averaging more than 30 knots through many of the watches, and over 600 miles a day. There are ways to set up the boat so that you can have 100% performance most of the time. It is brilliant, fantastic. »

Multihull expert and
Skipper of the ex-Orma 60' Groupama 2

« The MOD70 trimarans are at the cutting edge of the sport. They are purpose designed and built for close inshore racing as well as transoceanic racing. The conditions for racing the MOD70 between California, Hawaii and Mexico are incredible. I can’t wait to show American sailors how fantastic and fast these amazing machines are. »


Skipper on the MOD70 Orion Racing and crew for various teams

« The MOD70 is the culmination of 30 years of multihull refinement. It provides speed and security in one flawless package and can race safely offshore anywhere in the world, and yet can also race in the tightest of inshore regattas with identical speed to other MODs. Their one-design nature is fiercely and meticulously controlled, so no one boat can have an advantage, keeping the racing always thrilling and the boat values strong. There is every reason to sail a MOD70 – It’s the best sailing I have ever done. »


Skipper of the MOD70 Race for Water

« For me one-design is an essential step towards a cost-efficient project and the internationalization of the circuit. Reliability and cost-control are the two strengths of this project. »


Crew on the MOD70 Musandam-Oman Sail

« The MOD70s are an incredibly exciting one-design; they are fast, have a proven track record and are perfect for our team, which is about knowledge transfer from the professional sailors to myself and my fellow Omani crew mates. As well as making an exciting spectacle, racing a one-design is the best possible measure of our level. In the last two seasons every MOD70 has won a race, more than one in fact in most cases, what better way to promote a successful class ? »
