法国水手夏尔·戈德赫里埃在今天举行的东风号亮相仪式上被正式任命为东风队船长。两届奥运会羽毛球女单冠军张宁和中国首位完成单人不间断环球航海壮举的郭川在沃尔沃环球帆船赛首席执行官克努特·弗洛斯塔德、中国国家体育总局水上运动管理中心主任李全海、东风汽车公司副总经理童东城、东风商用车有限公司总经理黄刚、东风队各合作伙伴、以及在场宾客的共同见证下,在东风号赛船的船首敲碎香槟酒瓶,共同完成掷瓶礼

'寻找东风队船长人选的过程对我们来说并不容易。我们寻找的这个人不仅仅要具备在沃尔沃环球帆船赛中带领一个赛队赢得最好成绩所必需的帆船运动技能和领导能力,他还必须愿意向中国船员传授自身的帆船运动经验、带领他们组成一支具有竞争力的赛队',东风队总经理布鲁诺·杜布瓦说。'我们非常高兴夏尔·戈德赫里埃能成为东风队的船长,我们非常期待与他的合作。'

作为上届沃尔沃环球帆船赛冠军赛队安盟保险队的一员,夏尔·戈德赫里埃清楚东风队在2014至2015赛季沃尔沃环球帆船赛中将会面临什么样的挑战,他也做好了带领赛队全力冲刺的准备:'我非常高兴自己能成为东风队的一员。我希望能在全球范围内推广帆船运动。中国不仅仅是一个在经济领域有号召力的国家,她在帆船运动领域也有很强的号召力。现在我终于有机会能把我掌握的帆船运动知识传授给这些中国船员。沃尔沃环球帆船赛是一个关于团队合作和挑战自我的比赛,他们需要学习非常多的知识来应对这些考验。帆船运动在某种程度上来说是一门通用的世界语言,我希望能有更多的人能关注帆船运动、加入到帆船运动的行列中来。东风商用车有限公司支持组建的东风队给我提供了实现梦想的机会。'戈德赫里埃说。

作为一名职业远洋水手,夏尔·戈德赫里埃不仅在上届沃尔沃环球帆船赛冠军赛队安盟保险队中有着极为出色的表现,还在费加罗单人帆船赛和Transat Jacques Vabre双人横跨大西洋比赛中获得过冠军头衔。

沃尔沃环球帆船赛首席执行官克努特·弗洛斯塔德表示,夏尔·戈德赫里埃已经做好准备迎接挑战:'他是远洋帆船运动领域中最顶尖的水手之一,他不仅有着极高的帆船运动的天赋,有着沉稳的性格,还做好了带领这支中国赛队挑战比赛的准备。除了希望赢得比赛之外,他更希望能够通过自己的努力帮助中国培养更多的远洋水手,让中国在未来有能力组建一支百分之百的中国赛队参加沃尔沃环球帆船赛。'

东风号亮相仪式在于2月26日上午在东风队的官方训练基地三亚半山半岛帆船港顺利举行,近两百名嘉宾和媒体出席了这次的活动。东风商用车有限公司总经理黄刚也受邀出席了本次的活动:'东风号承载着东风人的国际化梦想,东风集团与沃尔沃集团的战略联盟,使东风商用车更为便利的参与世界顶级专业帆船赛事,这在加速实现'东风'品牌商用车走向国际化的同时,也承担起一份推动中国远洋帆船事业的责任。'东风号亮相仪式中的掷瓶礼环节由中国国家体育总局水上运动管理中心主任李全海、东风汽车公司副总经理童东城、以及为中国体育事业做出巨大贡献的张宁和郭川共同完成。作为中国首位完成单人不间断环球航海壮举水手,郭川非常荣幸能够参与东风号亮相仪式:'作为第一个参与沃尔沃环球帆船赛的中国人,我亲眼目睹了沃尔沃环球帆船赛在中国发展远洋帆船做出的努力。希望通过这一次历练,有更多的中国船员在东风商用车有限公司的支持下参与到远洋帆船运动中来。祝东风队一帆风顺、马到成功!' 赢得两面奥运女子单打金牌的张宁在完成掷瓶礼后表示,'中国有着悠久的航海历史,非常开心看到更多的中国优秀选手入选东风队,参赛世界航海的珠穆朗玛,挑战人类的极限运动。祝愿东风队取得优异成绩。'

作为2014至2015赛季沃尔沃环球帆船赛官方停靠港之一,三亚已经成为东风队的家。半山半岛帆船港不仅仅是东风队的训练基地,东风队的管理团队和东风队船长夏尔·戈德赫里埃也会在这里挑选出能够进入下一阶段训练的中外水手。在顺利通过了2月8日至9日东风队第二轮船员选拔活动后,四名中国国家帆船队的水手也加入到东风队的训练中,东风队训练营内中国船员的人数增至12人。'东风队将代表中国参加下届沃尔沃环球帆船赛,这是全球最顶尖的体育赛事之一',成功通过东风队第二轮船员选拔的张鹏说。'我希望我能有机会参加这个比赛,代表我的国家参加比赛。'

'东风队选拔测试的过程并不容易,但我们现在终于有机会我们有能力入选东风队训练营,这里的每一个人都具有非凡的航海天赋和经验。我很自豪今天能够以东风队训练营船员的身份参加东风号亮相仪式。对于我来说,这是一个梦想的开始,'李震说。

东风队长远的使命和最核心的目标是发展中国的远洋帆船运动事业。这支代表中国参加2014至2015赛季沃尔沃环球帆船赛并第一次有着绝对数量中国船员的赛队将载入沃尔沃环球帆船赛的史册。这将是在2017至2018赛季沃尔沃环球帆船赛中见到一支几乎由中国船员组成的赛队的前奏,也是在2020至2021赛季沃尔沃环球帆船赛中见到一直百分之百的中国赛队的基础。除了希望能够为中国的远洋帆船运动事业留下宝贵的财富外,东风队还希望能够与中国帆船帆板运动协会建立更加紧密的联系。

东风号亮相仪式仅仅是一个开始,精彩还在继续,值得期待。
