MY SONG CLAIMS NEW RACE RECORD

Line Honors Victory And A Cherry On Top For Baltic 130 Supermaxi

Pier Luigi Loro Piana’s Baltic 130′ Supermaxi My Song takes line honors and sets a new RORC Transatlantic monohull race record, covering a total of 3,000 miles from Lanzarote to the finish line in Grenada. My Song finished the 2018 race with an elapsed time of 10 days, 5 hrs 47 mins 11 secs, besting the previous record of 10 days 07 hours, 6 minutes, and 59 seconds set by Jean-Paul Riviere’s French Finot-Conq 100, Nomad IV in 2015.

Spending most of their time at a smooth 20-knots of hull speed, My Song was able to stay ahead of the clock, and the crew was pleasantly surprised at the dock in Grenada when generously greeted by locals and race officials in awe of their newly accomplished race record.

Congratulations to skipper Pier Luigi Loro Piana, and crew Giacomo Loro Piana, Luca Albarelli, Jaime Arbones, Andrea Balzarini, Gerri Baracchi, Giorgio Benussi, Alberto Bolzan, Ambrogio Francesco Maria Cremona Ratti, Gaetano Figlia di Granara, Andrea Forlani, Flavio Grassi, Cristian Griggio, Jose Ignacio Braquehais, Giorgio Peretti, Jacopo Piazzolla, Ignacio Postigo, Nicola Simoncelli, Vittorio Zaoli, and Gabriele Zoppi on a job well done.
