Telefonica's Black boat sound and safe in the Alicante base

After a trip that lasted 3 days aboard an Antonov cargo plane, Telefonica Negro, the Spanish VOR team's black boat, is now sound and safe in her base in Alicante. The Farr-designed Volvo Ocean Race boat arrived at the airport early in the morning on Thursday and after another odyssey that lasted almost 10 hours she was unwrapped in the team base in the afternoon.

The Telefonica shore crew is now working at full speed on fitting her out and, if all goes according to plan, she will make her maiden outing in the sea in approximately one week.
