2010 AUDI MedCup, certainly not lonely at the top
To name a few recent staff additions:
Luna Rossa, Torben Grael as tactician to helmsman Robert Scheidt. Italy’s 33rd America’s Cup winning Matteo Plazzi will be navigator. They will use the Italian built Vrolijk designed former Pisco Sour which has been updated for the new season and has been training off Valencia this week along with Quantum Racing (USA).
Quantum Racing have recruited past Farr 40 world championship winner Adrian Stead (GBR) as tactician who will partner Kevin Hall (USA) who will be the navigator.
Bribón was training off Palma at the end of March after adapting the boat to the new configuration, including the new tiller steering and new helmsman, Gonzalo Araujo. Britain’s double Olympic silver medallist Ian Walker (GBR) will serve as tactician.
TEAMORIGIN TP52 sees many familiar squad names and promises to be an exciting team – Ben Ainslie, Iain Percy, Ian Moore, Andrew Simpson, Mike Sanderson , Tony Mutter, Christian Kamp, Chris Brittle, Julien Cressant and Matt Cornwell.
More to come….
