The MOD70 Multi One Championship 2012-14 first event on the circuit starts with the Krys Ocean Race in New York. Oman Sail’s Multi One Design 70 team, the National initiative’s elite offshore crew, are in full preparation mode in Lorient, France, ahead of the transatlantic delivery to Newport and then New York for the start of racing on 7th July.

Sidney Gavignet (FRA), skipper of the trimaran Musandam-Oman Sail – recently named after the famous tourist destination in Oman at a ceremony in St Nazaire – has brought American sailor Ryan Breymaier onboard to stand-in for French offshore veteran and boat captain Loik Gallon who suffered an ankle injury. 'Ryan has a similar technical profile to Loik and has the most MOD70 experience as he was a member of the Veolia Team which has been sailing for a year already. Ryan will join us for the delivery and the Krys Ocean Race as boat captain. He will also be our local knowledge!' said Sidney.

Ryan joins Fahad Al Hasni (OMA), Mohsin Al Busaidi (OMA), Khamis Al Anbouri (OMA), Jeff Cuzon (FRA), Brian Thompson (GBR) and Thomas Le Breton (FRA) for the delivery. Five of the six race crew have been named for the Krys Ocean Race, the sixth slot will be filled by either Mohsin Al Busaidi (OMA) or Khamis Al Anbouri (OMA) just before the race start in New York.

'I am very happy to be joining the Oman Sail MOD70 for the Krys Ocean Race,' said Breymaier. 'These boats are incredible and the fact that the race starts in New York is an extra bonus. I’ll be proud to represent the USA as well as Oman. It’s great to have the opportunity to expose the American public to this type of racing, while at the same time collaborating with my Omani teammates to bring such a wonderful sport to their country. It is nice to be part of something, which transcends so many borders, both physical and otherwise. I am certain our multinational team has the capacity to surprise everyone.'

Musandam-Oman Sail, partnered by the Omani Ministry of Tourism, has been in the water for just two months and the crew has wasted no time in notching up 23 days of sailing. 'The schedule has been busy, we have tried to sail every other day which has put some pressure on the shore crew, but has really shown how reliable these boats are,' said Sidney. 'We have been focused on testing the gear and improving our sailing, we have lots to do to catch up with the other teams in terms of time on the water, but it is going well.'

The trimaran is due to leave France for the USA towards the end of this week and is expected to arrive by the 27 June. 'Our aim is to get the boat and the crew to Newport in one piece and to make the most of the time at sea to give Khamis, Fahad and Mohsin as much time as possible on the helm. It will be their first Transatlantic and that counts in a sailor’s life!' said Sidney who should know – he has completed 20.

'It’s my first transatlantic crossing. It’s a major milestone in my sailing career and I’m both excited and overwhelmed to be selected for it,' said Fahad Al Hasni. 'Our team has some of the best offshore sailors from around the world and learning from them has played a major role in my development. Exciting times ahead!'

Before setting off to Newport, the Musandam-Oman Sail team took some time to sail for the cameras, check out the latest helicopter photos of the MOD70:
