There’s a new race boat yard in Lisbon, and they’re flat out finishing off a ‘new’ fleet of round the world race boat. The latest from Seahorse… Seahorse Magazine: What was your brief right at the beginning of the refit process? Nick Bice: VOR director of boats and maintenance: The priority was reliability. The VO65 created a lot of reliability for the stakeholders in this race, for the teams, sponsors, sailors and of course us at Volvo Ocean Race HQ. In originally selecting the VO65 the criteria were reliability, performance and safety, which is paramount… and these boats now need to do another 70,000 miles. So my brief to the team was identical to when we were servicing these boats during the stopovers in the last race: always be proactive, not reactive. SH: How many are there in your team? NB: I have managed to keep our core team from last time and the head of each department. Then we’ve built onto that family, so we currently have close to 30 people in Lisbon. A significant number of those are in the paint team, as with new sponsors and branding there is a lot to do there!…  For the rest of the story from Sailing Anarchy CLICK HERE!
