Hamburg/Munich. Successful yacht “Malizia” in front of the Hanseatic city’s iconic symbol, the Elbphilharmonie: One week after the victory at the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta, skipper Boris Herrmann presented Team Malizia’s Vendée Globe campaign to the media in his home city today. It was the first time that the IMOCA 60 racing yacht was on display in Hamburg, the “gateway to the world”. In 2020, Herrmann will become the first German to take on one of the greatest and toughest challenges in yachting: 25,000 nautical miles around the globe, solo, nonstop, and without external support. BMW is on board as team partner with their automotive construction expertise and experience of transferring technology to competitive sailing. The “Malizia” sails under the standard of the Yacht Club de Monaco (YCM). The vice president of the YSM, Pierre Casiraghi, is the youngest son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, regularly sails with Herrmann and was also present in Hamburg.

Herrmann and Casiraghi presented the “Malizia”, an almost 20-metre Open 60 class racing yacht, to children, sailing fans, journalist and sponsors in detail, spoke about the great challenge of the “Vendée Globe” and presented the climate research and educational project “Malizia Ocean Challenge”.

“Today is a very special day in my sailing career, because this very special yacht is in my home city for the first time. The fact that our yacht is in front of this iconic backdrop makes us very proud,” said Herrmann. “Hamburg is no world metropolis like Berlin, for example, but it is the gateway to the world and very cosmopolitan. Which is an excellent match for the Vendée Globe.”

In the evening, the “Malizia” was hoisted out by crane and placed in front of the spectacular Elbphilharmonie building in the “Platz der Deutschen Einheit” (German unity square). BMW and the Elbphilharmonie have enjoyed a cooperative, long-term collaboration for many years.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
