With two outstanding skippers at the helm, Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard, Spindrift racing has continued to make a name for itself since it was established in 2011 thanks to the precision design of competition vessels. Audaciously bold but down-to-earth: the racing team’s approach has often paid off, as illustrated by the excellent results obtained in both championship races and efforts to break world records.

The results are a just reward for an amazing human adventure that Mirabaud has been proud to support as the key partner for the past three years (2014-2016).
