"Athens 2019" raid – Suzuki DF40 A on a 5,50m Marshall Rib

By Carlo Zazzera

Everything is ready for the new adventure of the “Club del Gommone” of Milan.

Navigating from Genoa to Athens and then, going up the Adriatic to the Ticino, up to Pavia: this is the new adventure that we will see the Suzuki DF40A protagonist in 2019, engaged in a raid of over 2.500 miles during of which the outboard "without license" of the Japanese house will push a Marshall m2 Rib along a route that announces as beautiful as challenging.

This non-sporting trial -there will be no records to beat, but miles to go in safety in the name of the pleasure- is organizing by the “Club del Gommone” of Milan. On Sunday 17 February, in Como Lake, both the Marshall m2 and the Suzuki outboard engine which installed at the stern were delivered, for a launch that getting closer to the "Athens 2019" raid.

These will be the stages: Genoa, Naples, Messina, Roccella Ionica, Gallipoli, Fanò (Greece), Lefkas, Pilos, Cape Malea, Athens, Corinth, Corfu, Split (Croatia), Trieste, Venice, Pavia.

At the helm will alternate crews composed of gentlemen drivers, pilots and non-professional sailors, but enthusiastic and expert ones, who will have the task of completing the adventure.

The Suzuki DF40A has already proven its skills by concluding other challenging raids: the "Giro d'Italia in RIB" of 2017 and the "A Gibraltar in RIB" raid of 2018.

The Marshall m2 that will be used for "Athens 2019 raid", instead, it is a Rib of 5.50 meters in length and above all it is a boat that seems to be done specially for those who want to approach the Ribbing: transportable, with lots of space on board, equipped with a rigid, performing, customizable, robust hull.

...keep Ribbing!
