Três equipes da Volvo Ocean Race disputam regata nas Ilhas Canárias

by Volvo Ocean Race on 18 Jul 2014
Iker Martinez training towards the Canary Islands Maria Muina
Team SCA, Team Brunel e a recém anunciada equipe espanhola testam suas embarcações neste sábado (19) na Round Canary Islands Race. Saiba mais da Volta ao Mundo no Dock Talk semanal.

Serão apenas 650 milhas, mas o suficiente para testar as embarcações para a Volvo Ocean Race. Team SCA, Team Brunel e a equipe espanhola participam da Round Canary Islands Race, uma regata que passa pelas sete ilhas ibéricas. A largada neste sábado (19) e a chegada serão na Marina Rubicon, em Lanzarote. A previsão é de três dias de prova.

O teste será importante para os times, principalmente para a campanha espanhola, que recentemente foi anunciada. O comandante Iker Martínez terá de correr contra o tempo em relação aos adversários e se adaptar ao barco Volvo Ocean 65. Para acelerar esse processo, os ibéricos terão a ajuda do especialista em vela oceânica Michel Desjoyeaux. O francês será o conselheiro da equipe. 'Será um grande desafio, pois sabemos que não temos muito tempo antes da primeira perna, que larga em em 11 de outubro', disse Iker Martínez, que comandou o Telefónica na edição 2011-12. 'Nós sabemos que estamos realmente pressionados. As outras equipes estão muito à frente em termos de preparação'.


O líder do Team Brunel, Bouwe Bekking, disse que a regata será importante para a equipe. 'Passamos dois meses bem ocupados na Holanda. Nosso foco foi apresentar a equipe para patrocinadores e para a comunidade. Todo mundo está feliz por voltar a velejar e otimizar o barco'.

O Team Alvimedica e o Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing estão cruzando o Atlântico de Newport, Rhode Island para o Reino Unido. Pelas regras, eles são proíbidos de competir na travessia, que é usada apenas como treino.

Enquanto os cinco rivais estão em atividade, o chinês Dongfeng fazem treinos de academia e outras atividades em terra. O campeão olímpico Thierry Peponnet (classe 470 em Seul-1988) é um dos consultores do time asiático. Volvo Ocean Race
