Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 - Southampton, England – Team Alvimedica have completed their line-up for the forthcoming Volvo Ocean Race by confirming Matt Noble as the final crew member.

The full line-up will take part in the Round Britain and Ireland Race, which starts today from Cowes on the Isle of Wight and includes five Volvo Ocean Race teams. Severe weather warnings are in place and conditions are expected to be treacherous.

'The Round Britain and Ireland Race is our first competition against the other Volvo boats, and one of our last training missions before we sail around the world, so we are really happy to have completed our crew,' said skipper Charlie Enright.

'We are very excited to have Matt. He did the recent Transatlantic crossing with us, and everything worked out great. So, to complete the line-up is a really good feeling and we’re ready to move forward as a group.'

The appointment of the 28-year-old Noble, who hails from San Francisco and will be sailing around the world for the very first time, underlines Team Alvimedica’s commitment to blooding young sailing talent.

Noble, the fourth American in the team, finished third at two 29er world championships and won the International 14 class world championships in Germany in 2008.

The Volvo Ocean Race, the world’s toughest and longest sporting event, starts in Alicante, Spain on October 4. Team Alvimedica is competing in the race for the very first time.

Based in Turkey and founded in 2007, Alvimedica, is a medical devices company committed to developing minimally invasive technologies. The company is a fast-growing challenger in the global field of interventional cardiology.
