Spindrift 2: From crew records to solo racing

Geschrieben von Marcel Krebs am .


"With Spindrift racing, we are tackling the records held by this boat, which is the largest in its class. To beat them, we must optimise the machine," Antoine Carraz, the technical manager and a sailor with Spindrift racing explains. "This year, we are doing crewed and solo. We made choices to be able to perform in both pursuits. It also allows us to explore avenues of innovation for the Jules Verne Trophy, the flagship objective of our campaign with Spindrift 2."

Geschrieben von Marcel Krebs am .


 Enkhuizen, The Netherlands – February 3, 2014 – Australian navigator Andrew Cape is back for his sixth Volvo Ocean Race with Team Brunel, reuniting with his former skipper Bouwe Bekking. Aged 51, Cape first took part in the race in 1993-94. He entered five editions since then, including in 2005-06 when he sailed with Bekking on movistar. Cape’s addition to the team as navigator only feels natural to the Dutch skipper, now at the helm of Team Brunel.
