After spending ten months in one of the technical sheds of the racing stable created by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild back in 2000, Gitana 11 slunk out of the shadows late morning this Monday 7th September. However it was necessary to wait until late afternoon, once the tide permitted, to see the 77 foot trimaran afloat. Among the members of the Gitana Team who have been working on her for several months, the emotion was palpable and the satisfaction of a job ‘well done’ was much in evidence. -
