Greek Challenge training in Valencia
For the first time ever, a Greek crew sailed an America's Cup yacht. It is taking place throughout the week in Valencia aboard K-Challenge's FRA-93. Sébastien Col and four of his World Match Racing crew are coaching the 25-strong Greek crew, giving them a crash course on ACC yachts. The team will make its maiden appearance in the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series in two weeks.
