Volvo Ocean Race, la North Sails e i “motori” dei nuovi VO65
Correva il 1995 quando lo stabilimento North Sails di Minden venne rivoluzionato per fare spazio all'allora neonata tecnologia 3DL: un passaggio cruciale nella storia del sailmaking, che si è ripetuto nel 2010, con l'introduzione del 3Di...
The all-female entry in the Volvo Ocean Race is by far the most active in their communication and has an onboard reporter, Corinna Halloran, that actually reports from onboard, providing some spectacular images
A French, avid, reader of VSail, and astute observer, noticed that Team SCA is using sliders over the pedestals to transfer sails from one side of the deck to the other while no such device can be seen on the Dongfeng or Team Brunel VO65's. Aren't the VO65's supposed to be one-design?
Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing’s VO65 Azzam touches the water
Team photographer Sander van der Borch sent a gallery of fantastic shots from the Team Brunel training session in Lanzarote.
Although the VO65's are one-design boats it's always nice to see beautiful photos of them sailing. Here's the first set from the Dongfeng Race Team sea trials in Hong Kong and Sanya, prior to the official christening ceremony
Ahead of being shipped to China on Wednesday, Green Marine have now officially handed over the Volvo Ocean 65 ‘Dongfeng’ to OC Sport. On the other side of the globe in Sanya, China the Dongfeng Race Team is preparing to put Chinese athletes through their paces in the first of several sailing team selection trials
Team Dongfeng’s Volvo Ocean 65 hit the water for the first time on Monday afternoon in southern England. It was a key moment for the Chinese entry in the next edition of the race – and another step towards the red boat’s first sail
In this exclusive video we visit the Team SCA base in Puerto Calero and take an in-depth look of the team's VO65 yacht, guided by the famous British sailor Sam Davies
Puerto Calero might play host to the 2013 RC44 World Championship this week, it also is the ocean training base for the Volvo Ocean Race Team SCA. We shot a few photos of the brand new VO65 at the dock on the eve of the RC44 regatta
With the first Volvo Ocean 65 now sailing, it’s time to hear what the sailors have to say about their new one-design machine. We met Team SCA’s Annie Lush, Sam Davies and Liz Wardley on the dock for a debrief on their first sailing impressions
According to Volvo Ocean Race organizers, to see Team SCA's new VO65 actually sailing feels like a "real landmark moment"; it is the beginning of a new one-design class and a "whole new era – or to put it another way, the start of something truly special"
The first of the new one-design Volvo Ocean 65 racing boats has come safely through a rigorous round of testing – including a heart-stopping pull-down test putting the boat at an angle of 50 degrees – and is on track to be declared “ready to sail” by the end of the week
After hitting the water on Monday at Williams Yard in Southampton, the structure and systems onboard went through a series of checks. The most impressive was the pull down test when the boat was heeled to 50 degrees and passed with flying colours
Volvo Ocean Race, il primo VO65 è in acqua
E' stato come aprire una finestra sulla nuova Volvo Ocean Race lunedì, quando il primo esemplare del nuovo monotipo VO65, costruito per le prossime due edizioni del giro del mondo in equipaggio, ha lasciato il cantiere Green Marine e ha toccato per la prima volta l'acqua.
SCA's race boat for the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 was put in the water late this afternoon. It is the first of the radical new VO65 racing yachts that will be used for the next two editions of the Race
