Inspired by dreamers
Translated 9 has a glorious history that speaks of diversity, courage, breaking rules, and plotting new courses.
Once known as ADC Accutrac, captained by Clare Francis – a true outsider and the first woman to lead a boat in the Whitbread – this Swan 65 had an unforgettable voyage, achieving a fantastic fifth place in the 1977 edition of the Whitbread and reaching the finish line in 126 days and 20 hours, all in a race in which getting to the finish is the first and greatest triumph.
Inspired by the story of Ramon Carlin, the Mexican businessman who unexpectedly won the first Whitbread Round the World on board Sayula II, Marco Trombetti and Isabelle Andrieu met the Carlin family off the coast of the Mexican city of La Paz, where the two Swan 65s sailed the waters of the Pacific side by side.
We want to repeat history: the same boat, the same route, the same old technology, and hopefully the same success.
