SNOWFLAKE

The third MOD 70 platform was delivered in July 2011 to Michel Desjoyeaux flying the FONCIA flag. She then switched colours to Phaedo 3 (USA), before being sold to Karl Kwok (Beau Geste) in August 2017. In May 2022, she was bought by Franck Slootman and rechristened Snowflake: skipper Gavin Brady. She’s been back in Europe since 20 July 2022


Launching : August 2011
Skipper : Franck Slootman / Gavin Brady

Following the change in ownership of the MOD70 No. 03 Ex-FONCIA just a few weeks ago only, it was under the colors of PHAEDO3 that it just beat the record for the RORC Caribbean 600 by cutting the line of arrived in Antigua this February 24, 2015 at 8:35 p.m. ET 30 seconds, HSA (UTC -04: 00) with a travel time of one day 9:35 minutes and 30 seconds. He thus broke the record previously established by Claude Thélier and John BURNIE on the ORMA 60 Region Guadeloupe for 6:35 minutes and 35 seconds.
