Zenith is joining Spindrift racing and the world's largest ocean-racing trimaran as Official Timekeeper. This is a unique opportunity for the brand with the guiding star to once more support a remarkable adventure and express its values: authenticity, daring and pleasure - through a highly technological project.
The maxi trimaran Spindrift 2, created with the aim of breaking the major ocean-racing records for crewed boats, and holder of nine circumnavigation records – including the Jules Verne trophy – will also take part in the single-handed Route du Rhum race.
This boat, designed for high performance wins, is the bold gamble of Dona Bertarelli, a businesswoman and accomplished athlete and Yann Guichard, an experienced sailor.
Like Zenith, the Spindrift racing team believes in its lucky star. Embracing technology in order to aspire to new horizons and provide guidance on the path to making dreams come true. Achieving exploits, whether everyday or of a whole lifetime. Reaching ever further, higher and playing a part in every conquest. Each moment, reinventing the subtle alchemy between tradition and avant-garde.
