LAKOTA

1990 - 18.28 m - JTA Technologies - 250 000

Overview


An incredible ex racing trimaran with an unequalled prize list. She has been converted by her current owner who is an experienced multihull sailor into a fast, simple and light cruising trimaran for transoceanic sailing and blue water cruising.

Originally built as PIERRE 1er for the legendary French sailor Florence Arthaud , she won the Route du Rhum in 1990,  making her the first woman ever to win a major  offshore sailing event.

She became LAKOTA in 1993 with new owner and skipper, US tycoon Steve Fossett, who was 5th over the line in Route du Rhum 1994 despite his limited experience in multihull sailing. He then sailed her in Transpac 1995 (1st over the line), San Francisco Yokohama 1995, Los Angeles Honolulu 1997 (2nd over the line), 1999 Pineapple Cup 1999 (1st). Between 1993 and 2000, he broke a total of 12 records.

In 2000, she was sold to the Swedish team 'Atlant Group'. They broke many records. She became successively SONY (2001), PINDAR (2001 - skipper Emma Richards), SONY (2002), NICATOR (Le Cap Rio Race in 2003 : 1st over the line), TIETO ENATOR L’OREAL (2004), LAKOTA (2007) and SJOVILLAN (2008).

In 2011, she was sold to her current owner who has since enjoyed using her for cruising and fast ocean passages.
