Green Team has been confirmed as the seventh entry in the 2008-09 race.

The boat, designed by Reichel Pugh and in build at McConaghy Boats in China, will be skippered by British Olympian Ian Walker.

The team’s participation is twinned with a race stopover in the west Irish port of Galway. Green Team have secured initial funding from a combination of private investment (led by a project board which includes John Kileen, Enda O’Coineen, Eamon Conneely and Jamie Boag as Team CEO), commercial sponsorship and government backing.
