GITANA – Ultime Trimaran on Jules Verne Trophy Standby
Comment are off
Few of us knew that GITANA was the name of the Rothschild’s first family yacht. Julie de Rotschield was an avid yachtswoman and sailor and even held several speed world records in the 1890’s. Fast forward more than 130 years and GITANA – the giant Ultime Class trimaran is one of many of her namesake, who continue the long family tradition of challenging man and machine against the power of the ocean.
GITANA is on standby mode to better the 40 day Jules Vernes Record which is currently held by Francis Joyon on IDEC.
