Anticipation, emotion and excitement. Those are some of the emotions being experienced today by both the Barcelona World Race organisers and the teams taking part in the world's only two-crew, non-stop round the world regatta.
The Cheminées Poujoulat team formed by Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam has been through quite bustling days. Following two busy refit months in Brest, during which the rigging, the ballast configuration and the keel have been modified, the boat is finally back on the water. Last Tuesday the boat left the shipyard on a semi-trailer, the keel was fitted yesterday and the boat was launched today in the commercial port of the French city.
The boat One Planet, One Planet Ocean which will participate in the third edition of the Barcelona World Race sponsored by Pharmaton® , has been presented today at midday. The presentation acthas been attended by the main guests, skippers Aleix Gelabert and Dídac Costa, who were joined on this occasion by actor Jesús Olmedo –image of Pharmaton®; Susana Laguna, head of PR at OTC in Boehringer-Ingelheim and Xavier Amador, Director of Institutional Relations from the Department of Life Quality, Equality and Sports of Barcelona City Council.
