Victory Challenge Launch SWE 96

I timed my return to Valencia well, linking in nicely with the launch of the new boat. Built in Gothenburg by Killian Bushe and his team who also did the Volvo yachts ABM Amro 1&2, and then finished off on site in Valencia. It is an impressively put together boat, with superb detailing.

Obviously I can't describe the boat too much, but we underwent the first sailing trials and completed the structural testing of the new boat. It was a long day, sailing until dark, but we are on a tight time schedule up to the Louis Vuitton Cup.
