SHOW #125 The Mini Maxis

The Mini Maxis are the elite fleet in owner/driver monohull racing. The investment to win in this class is high. Aside from the cost of the boats, owners must fund a professional race crew with a full race and training programme. The Mini Maxi Rolex Championship is the most important trophy of the season and last year’s winner Skype founder, Niklas Zennström, is on the hunt for a 4th title with his brand new boat, Ran 5. Up against him are half a dozen billionaire owners who are as keen to win on the water as they are in business and have hired America’s Cup and Olympic sailors to help them to victory. Shirley Robertson joins the competitors in Porto Cervo, Sardinia for one of the highlights of the grand prix sailing calendar and finds out what motivates the men who build and race these machines.
