IWC’s Abu Dhabi Racing Team’s striking black racing yacht, Azzam, which was dismasted on the first night of the Volvo Ocean Race competition, arrived at Cape Town’s port last week. We are pleased to report that our team’s yacht came in safe, and was lifted by crane straight off the ship and into the water.

“Even though it isn’t quite how we wanted to arrive in Cape Town, it’s great,” said Azzam’s skipper, Ian Walker, before joining in with the unloading of the boat into the water.

“It’s really one long chapter. We’re taking it quite positively. Things could have been a lot worse,” continued Walker, positively. “Every team is going to have setbacks in this race and it’s all about how well you deal with them. So far we’ve dealt with this one well.”
