From Switzerland, Team Tilt returns for the GC32 Riva Cup after a full season on the GC32 Racing Tour in which they finished a highly creditable second place.
Created in 2002 by Alex Schneiter, Team Tilt is best known for competing on Lake Geneva, where it is a two time Champion on the M2 catamaran circuit and has also won Switzerland’s top sailing event, the Bol d’Or Mirabaud three times on board its canting keel Psaros 40 monohull. Team Tilt’s biggest success came in 2015 when it not only won the Bol d’Or Mirabaud on its D35 catamaran, but also the D35 Championship.
The team is also no stranger to foiling catamarans having developed its own boat, Syz & Co, at 10.8m long, a little longer than the GC32.
Team Tilt is currently heading for June’s Red Bull Youth America’s Cup
