Soldini and Jovanotti, a race to “cannamorta” Hong Kong-Vietnam
The navigator is home MaseratiMulti70 of the singer, who had already taken part in a boat transfer in 2017. “Jova will stand to crank winch”
A race to “cannamorta” This is the expression that often uses Giovanni Soldini to make the idea of the ride at full speed on the waves. And this time aboard the trimaran MaseratiMulti70 there will be Lorenzo Cherubini, aka Jovanotti. Jova will be a grinder, which will play the role of what is to cranks and by force of arms hoist the sheets and halyards of the sails. A task quite difficult, considering the sail area of this type of boat. A boat that he already knows, because in 2017 he participated in a moving route between Italy and Spain.
The navigator and the singer, plus five other men (Guido Broggi, Furio Carboni, Nico Malingri, Matthew Soldini and Olivier Herrera Perez) will take part in the ninth edition of the Hong Kong to Vietnam Race, a regatta of 673 miles that will start on October 16 by Hong Kong at 5.10 Italian time and will arrive in Nha Trang in Vietnam. A run predominantly downwind, the pace faster, so probably “cannamorta”.
Nine boats in the race, two of which are multi-hulls. Maserati has to deal with Shk Scallywag Fuku Hong Kong, an Orma 60 with skipper Ben Piggot. Both aim to improve the speed of the race record of one day 18 hours 17 minutes set in 2015 by Sydney Fisher with monohull Ragamuffin 100. ‘standstill since 2006 the record for multihulls, recorded by Atmosphere Benoit Lesaffre a day , 23 hours and 40 minutes by boat.
