Vittorio and Nico Malingri did it, they broke the record of crossing the Mediterranean from Marseille to Tunis in 43 hours. An impressive achievement, considering that they beat the previous record set by Frenchman Bourgnon, aboard “Feel Good,” a six-meter (6.09 x 3.00) non-habitable carbon catamaran, by more than 10 hours. Thus begins their adventure with the Citroen Unconventional Team in the best possible way!

Vittorio Malingri, class of 1961, a pioneer of Italian ocean sailing, was the first Italian national to participate in the Vendeé Globe, the “Everest of the Seas”: immeasurable the amount of miles he has on his back. Nico Malingri, Vittorio’s second son, 24, has sailed across the Atlantic 11 times, and is here on his first competitive race.

“Feel Good,” a six-meter (6.09 x 3.00) uninhabitable carbon catamaran, is considered the fastest and most innovative boat in its class. It can touch a top speed near 25 knots and hold averages around 15 knots, with mileage of more than 300 miles per day.

THE CALENDAR.
In September Vittorio and Nico will attempt two more records, again aboard Feel Good: the Portofino-Giraglia – which has recently been homologated by the WSSRC – trying to set a benchmark time on a course never before navigated by boats in this class (Formula 20) and the Dakar-Guadalupe (February-March 2017) where they will instead attempt to cross the Atlantic in less than 11 days and 11 hours. Vittorio and Nico Malingri are part of the Citroen Unconventional Team (CUT), a team of extreme sportsmen who share a passion for adrenaline sports.
