The Wait Is Over - She's Back!

We have all been waiting and watching as The Boatyard in Lisbon work tirelessly to finish the refit process of 'Boat Number One'. That boat was our beloved Chinese boat and we can finally present our (almost) new racing machine...

  1. From new deck gear, electronics and branding, it has been a busy few months for the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard.
  2. -
  3. But with the final preparations now complete...
  4. ...Dongfeng is out of the shed, reunited with her keel and one step closer to the start line.
  5. "All of the guys at The Boatyard have done a fantastic job, and have hit every single deadline along the way...
  6. ...and now we can show off their hard work." said Graham Tourell, boat captain.
