阿利坎特——活力之城

阿利坎特坐落于西班牙东南方的白色海岸,也是阿利坎特省的首府。有着许多风光极佳的城市沙滩,城镇外更是有拥有长达7公里碧海金沙的圣胡安海滩。这里的夜生活同样精彩纷呈,老城中的活动更是丰富至极。你可以在巴里奥选择任意一条老街开始你的旅程,你会很快发现许多餐馆、塔帕斯餐厅和酒吧。贝纳堪第山峰上坐落着西班牙最大的中世纪要塞。圣巴巴拉城堡更是提供了绝佳的视野,整座城市一览无余。

十月是阿利坎特相对比较潮湿的一个月份,但仍然算不上非常潮湿,很少有长时间的降水。十月白天平均气温24度,但仍需带上一件外套,因为赛事村夜晚温度可能降至15度。

最重要的是,这将是2017-2018赛季的开始,这预示着长达九个月关于风暴、速度、改变人生故事的开启,你更将在这趟旅途中享受到绝美的景色和激动人心的赛程。

In-Port Race

 

MAPFRE draw first blood in 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race. It was a comprehensive victory for the Spanish team in the MAPFRE In-Port Race Alicante.

The local heroes on Xabi Fernández's MAPFRE were a popular winner in the first point scoring race of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race.

Fernández and his team made a bold call at the start to duck behind the entire fleet in order to sail up what turned out to be the favoured right hand side of the course, coming from behind to earn a narrow lead at the first gate.

“It was pretty clear from Joan (Vila) and Rob (Greenhalgh) that we wanted to hit the right side of the course in the first upwind looking for more breeze," explained Fernández.

"Our intention was to start on port but Pablo (Arrarte) saw the gap himself when Brunel did a poor tack and they couldn’t accelerate so we want for the cross and we had plenty of room and once we hit the right everything went well.”

MAPFRE then managed to stretch out to a lead of nearly one-minute at the bottom gate, giving them a lead they would enjoy the rest of the way.

"The truth is it hasn’t been an easy race but we took a bit of a risk at the start," Fernández said after the finish. "We saw the gap in front of Brunel and we went for it. Everything went really well."

In fact, the Spanish team sailed a flawless race, in terms of strategy and execution, and were never threatened after grabbing the lead at the first mark.

But behind them, it was a hard-fought race. Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag was strong on the first leg, but dropped back over the course of the race. In contrast, Dongfeng Race Team fought up the fleet to grab second place, battling with Vestas 11th Hour Racing and Team Brunel who were trading places throughout the race.

“There was a lot of action! MAPFRE played their own game alone but behind them, we had a big fight for second place. It’s good, it’s good," said skipper Charles Caudrelier on Dongfeng Race Team.

"We showed how we can sail well, after having not such good results in the last few days. It’s great that we managed to come back and get this result.”

“It was a very exciting first In-Port Race for us," said Charlie Enright, the skipper of Vestas 11th Hour Racing. "They’re always really close. You know, when you’re racing these 65-foot canting keel boats around a one-mile track it gets interesting, with a lot of exchanges and big headsails and a lot of grinding. We did some good things and some bad things and got third place. All in all, not a bad way to start the campaign.”

"I had a bad start and that put us on the back foot," said Bouwe Bekking the skipper of Team Brunel. "But we sailed the boat very nicely. All in all, we're pretty happy with how we sailed today."

Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag made a late gain to grab fifth over team AkzoNobel with Turn the Tide on Plastic never recovering from a poor first leg.

"It was okay. Fifth’s not great but it was okay. We were second at the top but we just made one mistake on the first run and it cost us. Basically, it was good. Amazing to be racing here in Alicante," said David Witt, the skipper of Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag.
