Ador Celebrates Record-Breaking Win In Sevenstar Round Britain And Ireland Race

Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing (ADOR) – Abu Dhabi’s Volvo Ocean Race contesting crew – triumphed in its class, despite injuries, in the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race (RB&I), leading the fleet for most of the 1,800-mile course and finishing with more than a two hour lead on its closest competition. ADOR currently holds the monohull record for the RBIR race with its Azzam Vo65 yacht, the Fastnet monohullrecord from 2012 with its previous Azzam Vo70, and the Rolex Fastnet Race monohull record from 2011. The win adds to ADOR’s impressive record in the United Kingdom, but for the team it’s primarily a chance to hone their skills before they arrive in Alicante, Spain, soon to begin the Volvo Ocean Race.
