Telefonica Blue is back in the water already making preparations for the 2011-12 Race
Six months after the two Spanish boats returned to their home port of Alicante at the end of the 2008-09 race, Telefonica Blue is back in the water carrying out equipment and materials tests.
Given that the 2011-12 Race Rules and Notice of Race show a number of changes, aimed at containing costs, Pedro Campos and his team have made an early start to their preparations for a Spanish campaign in the next race.
Campos said: “We want to start to get ready for the next Volvo Ocean Race as soon as possible, so it is fundamental to begin the testing phase before the future sports team starts to arrive.”
