Volvo Ocean Race: Real progress for Dongfeng Race Team!
Second of the Volvo Ocean Race
Charles Caudrelier: “It’s been tough. All teams have the same boat, therefore we race at the same speed. We have rarely seen fights like that in the last editions. Every nautic mile is a fight. I’m very proud of my crew. Our Chinese sailors have achieved wonderful things. People should figure out: six months ago none of these guys ever sailed offshore. Today, they take part to one of the most difficult race in the world and have achieved a 26 days long stage! It’s exceptional. And the others sailors, for their part, have a big experience. They are able to push the boat forward very fast, especially when we are in contact with our opponents.”
