Learning super-skills can boost your chances of joining a crew for the Volvo Ocean Race
In our continuing series from the Volvo Ocean Race boatyard in Lisbon, Liz Wardley shares her excitement of getting the first boat on the water after its refit, and also explains the importance of learning super skills as a sailor now that new rules encourage mixed teams in the race. While sail repairs are crucial most problems occur with the systems so learning engineering and hydraulics can make you indispensable in offshore racing. Introduced by former Team SCA Boat Captain and Volvo Ocean Race sailor Abby Ehler from The Magenta Project.
The next edition of the Volvo Ocean Race starts in October 2017.
