2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race - On Board Abu Dhabi for Pro-Am Race - Alicante, Espana

Sunday I also got to sail with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing for the first Pro-Am Race and Team Alvimedica for race two. Both crews were really on their game even thought the racing was a bit casual.  The fun part of the day was the transfer between the boats between the races. I got lots of compliments for the Team Alvimedica for my shirt peal on the rib before climbing on board to sail with Charlie, Mark and crew.
