MOD70: 2013 Season and 2014-2016 Horizon

The inaugural MOD70 racing season was deemed a great success proving the potential of the one-design MOD70 Class and the full value of this innovative concept in the sailing world through the boat performance, reliability, the tight races and exciting events.

Over 850,000 visitors followed the competition in the race village of the "Krys Ocean Race" and "MOD70 European Tour".
In the absence of a title sponsor for 2013, MOD and teams have opted on competing in events that include different classes.
The MOD70 fleet program includes a European Tour in the "Route des Princes" next June and most likely the "Transat Jacques Vabre" race between Le Havre (France) and Itajai (Brazil) with scheduled start on the 3rd of November.

It is important to note that the MOD70 fleet is growing with the launch of MOD70 nr.06 Virbac Paprec (skippered by Jean-Pierre Dick) and the arrival of an American Team Orion Racing, which purchased MOD70 nr.02 (ex-Veolia) with Cam Lewis, regarded as one of the best multihull sailors in the USA, part of the team.
With an international participation at the highest level composed of a minimum 7 teams, MOD's objective is now to actively work on the 2014-2016 circuit program, with notably the second edition of the "Krys Ocean Race" (from Brest to New York). The first edition, with a finish during the Tonnerres de Brest, proved a great success and the second edition is soon to be announced.
