Sail-World.com : Abu Dhabi: Novo barco Azzam é visto pela primeira vez
Abu Dhabi: Novo barco Azzam é visto pela primeira vez

'Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing’s new Volvo 65 emerges from the boat yard for the first time.'    Ian Roman

O Azzam para a Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 já foi revelado pelo estaleiro Green Marine, em Southampton, na Inglaterra. Na manhã desta quinta-feira (27), o barco da equipe do Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing foi retirado da área de construção e içado para depois ser levado à água nas próximas semanas. O comandante Ian Walker e os integrantes do time acompanharam o processo. O veleiro chamou a atenção pelas cores, misturando prata e amarelo com linhas em vermelho e dourado. Todo o processo de construção do Abu Dhabi levou quase 2 mi horas.

'É fantástico. A equipe de pintura deu vida à embarcação. Após a colocação das velas a impressão deve ser ainda melhor. Todo projeto foi muito complexo', disse Ian Walker.

O comandante Ian Walker falou mais sobre a nova campanha na Volvo Ocean Race. 'São várias etapas até a largada e a saída do barco do estaleiro é um marco importante. Não posso esperar para levá-lo pra água e colocar as velas'. O novo Azzam é um dos oito barcos de 65 pés projetados e construídos de maneira idêntica para a próxima edição da regata.

Depois do lançamento do barco e o teste de pull-down, a equipe do Abu Dhabi fará a pré-temporada em Cascais, em Portugal. A Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 começa em 4 de outubro com a In-port Race de Alicante

O setor de turismo e cultura de Abu Dhabi tem o objetivo de divulgar a cultura e promover o patrimônio dos Emirados Árabes Unidos. A autoridade comercializa o destino internacionalmente por meio de uma ampla gama de atividades destinadas a atrair visitantes e investimentos. Suas políticas, planos e programas são relacionados à preservação do patrimônio e da cultura, incluindo a proteção de sítios arqueológicos e históricos. Os museus também são destaques como o Louvre Abu Dhabi, Museu Nacional Zayed e Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. A secretaria apoia atividades intelectuais e artísticas. Abu Dhabi foi nomeada como destino de esportes no mundo pela World Travel Awards 2013.
