First day of two-boat training for Telefonica

Telefonica is on a roll. The Spanish Volvo Ocean Race team started its two-boat training sessions earlier on Friday a mere 4 days after receiving the second boat, Telefonica Blue.

Telefonica Black left the base at around noon while the blue yacht, after some last-minute fine tuning, joined her at 3pm. After a total of 3 hours sailing off Alicante's coast the two yacht returned to port and Bouwe Bekking, sports and technical director of Telefonica, was more than satisfied. They were able to test various sails and sailing angles and the first impressions were very positive.
