The organisers stated that:
“Victory for this fast and folding trimaran built in Vietnam, came as a real surprise in a category which included models with very distinct personalities. While all the other competitors obtained very similar results, ranging from 17 to 20% of the votes, the Rapido took almost 27% of the votes.”
In the video below, Rapido’s agent in France, Laurent Ludwiczak of Navis LR, accepts the award.
