Wally Nano Nostromo at the Bol d' Or 2019Add to Lightbox Download
June 2019 Geneva Mission accomplished for Nostromino, the brand-new Wally Nano MK11 007, that couldn’t find a better way to test its qualities during the 2019 edition of the Swiss international regatta, which will probably remain in sailing history books for the tough, stormy conditions that hit the fleet.Christened the day before its debut at the Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2019, Nostromino is owned by Sir Andrew Cook, an Englishman living in Switzerland, who also owns Nostromo, a 100 feet sloop designed by late famous naval architect Ed Dubois fulfilling a pledge he made to GYC and RTYC members two years ago.
Sir Andrew chose the 81st edition of the world's most important inland lake regatta as the opening race for his new boat, captained by Sweden’s former Finn Gold Cup winner Thomas Lundqvist and teamed with Danish triple Olympic medallist Jesper Bank, Dutch builder Joop Doomernik, UK’s John Archer, multihulls’ expert Bertrand Geiser and Swiss artist Anthony Bannwart.
