  1. They carried 60 liters of water and about 30 Kg of food for the trip stored in the hulls
  2. Team Malingri succeeded! The Transatlantic record comes back to Italy.

    14' Stunt S9 Foiling Cat

    Thanks Michele, but you forgot to say how many S9 Turbo will be sailing at Cesenatico against standard S9s. And please keep us informed on the final results of the biggest S9 regatta ever
  4. Team Malingri (father and son) started on Sunday from Dakar to beat the beach cat transatlantic record currently held by two French catsailors on OCTO Finances. They need to reach Guadalupe a few hours before the 24 of April 20, to accomplish their goal (current record 11 days, 11h 25 m). Actually (after nearly two days from start) they have an advance of around 60 nm having sailed 260 nm in the last day. For all info:

    14' Stunt S9 Foiling Cat

    A question for Michele: looking at the web site of the Congrega Velisti Cesenatico, the organizing authority of the well known Easter multihull regatta ("Vele di Pasqua"), I found that no 9 S9 are so far pre-registered. How many of them are the new sloop version (let's call it the SL9)? I am curious to learn if the SL9 is faster than the unirigged S9 on a standard upwind/downwind racecourse

    New S1 by Michele Petrucci

    I cannot say how large is the niche which the S1 is going to fill in the catamaran market. But, according to my opinion, as I already wrote above, there is not a double hulled boat comparable to the Musto Skiff, the Devoti D-One or the RS 700. If you do not agree, please mention yr candidate/s and let's have a peacefull discussion

    New S1 by Michele Petrucci

    WetnWild It is not true that BIMARE has not been able to compete in existing class in the near past. Have a look at the results of the 2016 F16 Worlds and you'll find no 5 BIMARE X16 F in the top 10 and 2 in the top 3
  9. The first pics of the latest Michele Petrucci's project are on line. Surprisingly the new cat is not (for the moment) a foiler but it is described as a fast planing floater (22+ knots are expected on a close reach). However evidently it can be easily updated to the foiling mode. According to my opinion Michele's aim is to open a new "niche" in the catamaran market: the S1 can be regarded as the Musto Skiff, the Devoti D-One or the RS 700 of the double hulled boats i.e. the "non plus ultra" of solo catamaran sailing.

    14' Stunt S9 Foiling Cat

    Bench Warmer Micheal Miller worked for BIMARE (I don't know if paid or unpaid) for several months back in 2015 organizing and managing many testsails for catsailors potentially interested to the S 9. The fact is confirmed by the editor of Catsailingnews on his first report on the I Fly 15. QUOTE Following Stunt 9 path, Michael Miller, who used to promote the S9 back in Punta AlA 2015, has launched a new recreational foiler the I Fly 15 UNQUOTE I personally met him in Punta Ala during the A class Worlds and he was all the time behind the S 9 spending warm and passionate words about the boat. Then for sure when he started his project, he had a deep knowledge of the design and building secrets of the S9

    Add 2,500 EUR for a 40' container which can store up to 6 assembled S9s and you get the bill. For the US tax and custom duties ask Charlie
