The Prize

Maserati branded waxed canvas jacket worn by Giovanni Soldini at a crucial moment in his career: when he set the Hong Kong - London world speed record in 2018. The jacket displays clear signs of use.

Born in Milan on May 16 1966, Giovanni has been sailing since he was a small boy.

He has over 25 years of ocean racing to his credit, including two single-handed round the worlds (he won the Around Alone in 1999 and made history by also rescuing Isabelle Autissier, and finished second overall in the 1995 BOC Challenge), six Québec-Saint Malos (one victory in the monohull category), six Ostars (two victories in the 50’ and 40’ classes), three Transat Jacques Vabres (one victory in the 40’ class) and over 40 ocean crossings.

In 2016, after an intense three years aboard Maserati VOR70, Soldini and his Team embarked on a new adventure with Maserati Multi70, marking a return for the Milanese yachtsman to multihull sailing (he had previously competed in crew races with the 60’ trimaran Tim).

In 2018, aboard Maserati Multi 70, he conquered the Tea Route record from Hong Kong to London, sailing 15083 miles in 36 days, 2 hours, 37 minutes and 12 seconds. Later in the year he won Multihull Line Honours both in the Rolex Middle Sea Race (with an elapsed time of 2 days, 11 hours, 54 minutes and 58 seconds) and in the RORC Transatlantic Race (with an elapsed time of 6 days, 18 hours, 54 minutes and 3 seconds).

In 2019, he participated in February in the 11th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 aboard Maserati Multi 70, winning Multihull Line Honours and setting the new multihull record with a time of 1 day, 6 hours, 49 minutes and 0 seconds.
