Boat Owner: Bertrand Demole (SUI)
Tactician: Erwan Israel (FRA)

Having raced together since 2015 Bertrand Demole's Ylliam XII - Comptoir Immobilier was the winner of the D35 class at the 2019 Bol d'Or Mirabaud and took second place overall.

In the D35 Trophy Demole's team have podiumed in second place for the past three years. The spirit of the team, lead by Demole himself, is of consistency and progression, with their hard work over the past five years showing in the results.


Continuing their evolution with the fleet the TF35 offers a fresh challenge to the team, as Demole explains: "It was an obvious choice to be part of this adventure. What we are looking forward to the most – apart of flying – is to discover a new design of the boat and finding the perfect key to racing the TF35. It is going to be an amazing experience for the sport and crew."

The flight system, the polyvalence of the boat and the logistic aspect of it are fascinating. On the contrary with the F50 and America's Cup boats, the TF35  accessible to any sailor the flight system will let to non-professional skipper to take the helm, the boat has been shaped unusually to sail in the light wind and to be easily transportable."
