British sailor Robert Greenhalgh joins MAPFRE as one of the captains for this year’s Volvo Ocean Race. For Greenhalgh, a well-known sailor, sets forth on his fourth Volvo Ocean Race with the Spanish team. He won the race in 2005-2006 on board “ABN AMRO ONE” and was second with “Puma” in the 2008-2009 edition. The last time he competed in the race was in 2011-2012 as a member of the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing crew.
“I am looking forward to the challenge. The Volvo Ocean Race in its new One-Design format looks awesome; the racing looks very close and intense. ‘MAPFRE’, although not a good Leg 1, is definitely a favourite for the race. This will be my fourth race, having finished 1st, 2nd and 5th, so I look forward to being on top again,” he says optimistically.
