illbruck Challenge Begins Training in Charleston, South Carolina
The illbruck Challenge team is now training for the Volvo Ocean Race from Charleston, South Carolina on the East Coast of the U.S.
The team has established a base camp at the Charleston Harbor Marina where they are sailing with both of the illbruck Volvo 60 training boats. The sailing team arrived to Charleston last week for six weeks of sail testing and training before the new race boat arrives in May. Once the new boat arrives, the team will sail one of their training boats, the former EF Language, the 1997-98 Whitbread Round the World winner, as a benchmark against the new Volvo 60. www.VolvoOceanRace.org
