This morning we announced Areva as our title sponsor. We will now be called Areva Challenge instead of K-Challenge. Over the next few months I will be learning more about the new sponsor company as well as working hard to get the team back to working on sailing instead of worrying about where the next euro is going to come from. THAT will be a relief!
The guys have really been good lately though – working hard to move the base from our sleepy little town of Gandia to Valencia. Dealing with rotating apartments and working hard to do just about anything that needs to happen. The piec de résistance was that this morning while a few of us were in Paris for the press conference the rest of them got up at 5am to launch and tow the boat up – arriving in the Darsena at 9:45am us tin time to beam photos up to the press conference!
