At the end of the first season on this new generation foiling catamaran that takes off in 9 knots and up, Pierre Casiraghi finished 6th overall. It was a successful warm-up Tour that not only allowed him to compete against the best, but also confirmed him as a fully-fledged racer. The results speak for themselves: two race wins, three seconds and ten third places. Malizia even set her own speed record at an adrenalin-pumping 38.4 knots, which is just over 71km/h.


Armed with his experience and assisted by talented sailors, Pierre Casiraghi has the right cards in his hand to tackle this new season. All the signs are good. Having arranged training sessions in regatta conditions at the Monaco Sportsboat Winter Series and more recently in Palma, the YCM’s Vice-President is approaching this season with confidence.
