Team Brunel in Lanzarote

Leg One :  Alicante – Cape Town – Abu Dhabi – Sanya
Leg Two: Sanya – Auckland – Itajaí – Newport
Leg Three: Newport – Lisbon – Lorient – (The Hague pit-stop) – Gothenburg

The thrill-a-minute Volvo Ocean Race starts on 4th October. The crew of Sailing Holland Team Brunel have chosen Marina Rubicón – Lanzarote as their training base. Also preparing on our island is the all-female SCA team, although they’re moored at Puerto Calero, just a few miles further northeast. This particularly enduring race starts by crossing the Atlantic on an easterly course.

Lanzarote is an old favourite of Team Brunel thanks to its pleasant climate, ideal wind patterns and numerous open-air sports facilities. If we add to that the island’s excellent yachting facilities and flight links, then their choice is clearly spot on.

The crew members are:

  • Bouwe Bekking
  • Gerd-Jan Poortman
  • Jens Dolmer
  • Pablo Arrarte
  • Andrew Cape

On arrival, Team Brunel were warmly welcomed at Bar One, a must-visit for all sailors passing by here, and enjoyed a mouthwatering paella at their new home port.
