Ericsson Hits The Road

The first of Ericsson’s two challengers for the 2008-09 race broke cover yesterday when it emerged from the team’s boatyard in Kista, Stockholm.

The second generation Volvo Open 70, designed by Argentina’s Juan Kouyoumdjian, was wheeled out of Irish boat builder Killian Bushe’s state-of-the-art facility next to the Ericsson corporate headquarters.
