The launch of Maxi Edmond de Rothschild
On Monday July 17th the brand new Maxi-trimaran Edmond de Rothschild, designed by Gitana Team in partnership with the architect Guillaume Verdier, touched the water for the first time. Innovative boat, designed for flying offshore -when conditions allow- with her special appendages (T-rudders, foils, centerboard with elevator), she will participate in several races including the next Transat Jacques Vabre and her skipper Sebastien Josse will take part to a solo around the world in 2019 against other boats of her kind.
We are proud having worked for this wonderful boat, C3 technologies made the floats bulkheads and the 3 rudders with a “T” shape. The latter, in carbone, are very complex and specifically their mechanically driven flap and they represent a major evolution in the offshore racing field.
