Kiwis Eye cup success

There will be a posse of Volvo Ocean Race sailors filling key roles during the semi-finals of the Louis Vuitton Cup in Valencia over the next few days.

No fewer than 30 crew members with at least one Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race on their CVs will be scattered among the challenger pairings of Emirates Team New Zealand v Desafío Español and the American entry BMW Oracle against Italy’s Luna Rossa.
