Ep. 73: The Austrian Ocean Race Project
We are about two months away from the start of the 2023 Ocean Race in Alicante Spain and there have been many changes since the last time the fleet visited Newport in 2018. Volvo is no longer a title sponsor, there are four fewer legs, but the biggest change is the addition of a second class of one-design boats. This new class greatly expands the fleet opens the door to a whole host of new teams, like the Austrian Ocean Race Project. On this episode of Around the Buoy, we are joined by one of the team founders and boat's skipper, Gerwin Jansen, to talk about this new team, what makes them unique, and what they are racing for. Catch up with Carter, Tyler, and all things Ocean Race on Around the Buoy Episode 72!
