Gitana 16, 2016 version crafted by Gitana Team

28 April
Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Elegant and sleek, the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild, alias Gitana 16, sports the eagle and the lion on her bow. Emblems of the family coat of arms, these kings of the animal world symbolise long term vision, power and excellence. Such virtues embody this modern, resolutely avant-gardist monohull designed for the Vendée Globe 2016-2017 (race start on 6 November) and developed around skipper Sébastien Josse by Gitana Team's specialists.

The Transat, the history of a giant

Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Created in 1960 by the RWYC (Royal Western Yacht Club), the mother of solo offshore racing has stood the test of time, changing its name on many occasions but with few alterations to the concept. Traditionally open to multihulls and monohulls, its course sets sail from the south of England, first Portsmouth, now Plymouth, to make for America's eastern seaboard and what was originally Newport, then Boston and today New York.

Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Last Sunday the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild made the port of Plymouth (UK), which will host the start of the famous transatlantic race on Monday 2 May at 13:30 GMT.

Flying offshore, the Gitana Team's first gamble pays off

For 2017-2020 Multi70 Edmond de Rothschild

In late 2013, the members of Gitana Team embark on an adventure that is as thrilling as it is complex: overhauling the Multi70 Edmond de Rothschild, a 70-footer initially built to race in crewed configuration on a one-design circuit, in a bid to become the first flying offshore trimaran. It is an ambitious project. Like Rome, which wasn't built in a day, the transformations to Gitana XV call for over two years' research and innovation to satisfy the objectives of the five-arrow team. However, everyone (...)
