The Multi50 Class
The Multi50 class is the reference for ocean-racing multihulls.
The Multi50 class is for skippers and owners of trimarans and catamarans of a maximum length of 15.24 m.
50 ft multihulls are fast, fun and fascinating while still being safe.
Meets: inshore and offshore events
Inshore events (coastal racing) such as the Grand Prix Guyader, the Trophée Prince de Bretagne Saint-Quay Portrieux and the Trophée du Port de Fécamp, last 3 days and consist of coastal races.
The solo, double-handed and crewed ocean races include the solo Route du Rhum and the crewed Quebec-St Malo Race.
