土耳其伊斯坦布尔,2014年1月30日- 七年前,两个年轻的美国帆船发烧友因为一部迪士尼电影相遇,一起梦想将来有一天他们将组队参加世界上最艰难的远洋帆船赛——沃尔沃环球帆船赛。

今天,显然这个长久以来的志愿已经成为现实。在Alvimedica的故乡伊斯坦布尔,Alvimedica队宣布参加2014-15年沃尔沃环球帆船赛。

马克·托维尔遇到查理·恩莱特时只有18岁,大他四岁的查理和他一样是迪士尼帆船电影《晨光》的年轻演员。这部纪实电影讲述了一次跨越太平洋的航行,并邀一些远洋航海中的大腕一起完成。

现在29岁的恩莱特说,'我们是在试镜时遇到的,但我们都认为拍这个电影是我们的梦想的开始,我们的梦想就是沃尔沃环球帆船赛。'

'在《晨光》拍摄现场,有很多参加过沃尔沃环球帆船赛的老将做我们的教练,比如斯坦·哈尼,迈克·桑德森,杰里·柯比。在顶级航海帆船赛这个领域,他们为我们建立了很好的基础。'

'曾经一度我们的设想很清晰,也是我们做任何努力的动力。'托维尔说,他曾和恩莱特一起成立过全美海洋队。'

'尽管我们和迪士尼电影起初合作很好,但做任何事都不容易。我们也曾花很长时间不务正业,就为了暂时放松一下,但一切都关乎自己创造机会。帮助过我们的人太多了,是他们让今天成为可能。'

慢慢地他们的梦想开始初见雏形。2011年,沃尔沃环球帆船赛CEO克努特·弗洛斯特还邀请他们一起去阿里坎特为第11届阿里坎特的赛事加油。

在寻找赞助商的过程中,恩莱特和托维尔找到了Alvimedica,一家年轻有野心的公司,他们的梦想将从起航线起飞。下届沃尔沃环球帆船赛将于10月4日,从阿里坎特起航。

Alvimedica 是来自土耳其的一个医疗器械公司,Alvimedica队的队员几乎都是30岁以下,和Alvimedica本身的公司理念也一致。

它强调敏捷,创新,不怕承担,将有助于开发巨大的美国市场。Alvimedica是土耳其增长最快的新兴公司之一,目前的理想是开拓美国以外的新领地。沃尔沃环球帆船赛和美国的水手们就是最好的平台。

恩莱特将担当队长,托维尔是船队目前唯一的水手。在下一步才是找到尽可能多的优秀的年轻水手们,来对他们进行测试。

'我们的计划是,我们将着眼于美国第一,但扩大市场需要吸收更多国际年轻船员,包括来自意大利和土耳其的。'

弗洛斯塔德很高兴,欢迎船队和冠名赞助商加入沃尔沃的大家庭,Alvimedica是下届比赛第五个确认参赛的船队。

'这是我自工作开始至今见过的最令人兴奋的新船队之一。'他说。'Alvimedica是自2008年起我梦想中的一切:年轻人白手起家开始项目。'

'我们也欢迎新的来自土耳其的赞助商。上届比赛在土耳其引起了很多兴趣,这是一个帆船越来越强大的国家。Alvimedica的医疗技术专注于心脏。我认为沃尔沃环球帆船赛是世界上最艰难的身体和心脏的挑战之一,因此,这将是一个有趣的研究! '

船队的CEO将是比尔·埃克伦,在美国帆船界,这是个家喻户晓的名字。

Alvimedica首席执行官杰姆·波兹库特说: '作为一个年轻的公司,我们在全球市场有巨大的野心,在帆船圈,我们也有同样的目标。'

'沃尔沃环球帆船赛是一个快速,动态事件,它利用了最新的技术,就像Alvimedica一样。我很骄傲,能把土耳其国旗插在赛事村入口。'

Alvimedica队将加入SCA队,阿布扎比队,东风队,Brunel队,征战环球超过38739海里的总航程,比赛进行约9个月,最后在2015年6月27日在哥德堡收官。
