mapfre volvo race 3

The VO 65 “MAPFRE” and the rest of the competitors have decided to target the North. Xabi Fernández explains that the challenge not is to over come the high pressure wind dragging the feet on the way to Abu Dhabi,  “You have to spend a little wind zone before us and once we leave here we will take the Trade North South direction.”

Meanwhile, the crew of “MAPFRE” has quickly adapted to life on board. Carlos Hernández shares, “We are already accustomed to life aboard the ship. We are in the fight and expect to be whole stage front and to win it. “
