The flying monohull Mirabaud LX has won the classic Genève-Rolle-Genève - one of the lake’s most important regattas – in the monohull division and smashed the event’s record ahead of Jo Richards’ prototype.

Thomas Jundt, Antoine Ravonel and Eric Gobet have won their first major regatta on board their spectacular hydrofoils 18'footer Mirabaud LX, winning the 32 Miles return-course between Geneva and the town of Rolle in 3 hours 43. Jo Richards and his crew onboard Full Pelt finish two minutes later, whilst Oyster - the fabulous Seb Schmidt prototype - completes the podium 15 minutes later. Mirabaud LX smashes the previous record, held until now by a Psaros 40 in 3h55. Mirabaud LX
