Malizia: set to take-off for second season
Pierre Casiraghi is back with his crew on Malizia in the run-up to the second GC32 Racing Tour which started Thursday 11th May in Riva del Garda, Italy at the Riva Cup.
“After that first experience last year, we have trained hard and enthusiastically for the second season. If we are to continue to progress, it’s vital we keep the same crew and keep sailing together. We are so looking forward to racing again!”
It’s an adventure the Monegasque started last year alongside experienced sailors.
Among them is Sébastien Col, match racing specialist and regular participant in the America’s Cup; Boris Herrmann, a pure product of offshore racing and driving force behind this project alongside Pierre; Richard Mason who is equally at home on an Olympic dinghy as he is in the offshore Figaro; and Adam Piggott straight from the Extreme Sailing Series circuit.
Supervising them is Pierre-Alexis Ponsot. Winner of the Baccardi Cup 2012, a French Olympic team member and with a clutch of victories in the Tour de France à la Voile under his belt, the coach has bags of experience to pass on.
