The Volvo Ocean Race fleet was treated to a warm welcome in Guangzhou, China, on Thursday afternoon, after arriving 70 miles up the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong.
After proceeding with the public arrival festivities, the skippers then met the local media:
Dee Caffari, skipper, Turn the Tide on Plastic, on building skills with her young crew: “Every day is a school day for us. We learn every day… Everybody is continuing to develop and improve. Now we have to make sure our rate of improvement is a little bit better than these other guys and I’m sure our results will come.”
Next up on the calendar is the Dongfeng In-Port Race Guangzhou, on Saturday afternoon. The fleet departs Guangzhou on Monday, February 5.
