About The Team

Bouwe Bekking, the most experienced sailor in Volvo Ocean Race history, will return to skipper the seventh confirmed team in the 2017-18 edition – and give himself another chance at claiming an elusive first victory at the eighth attempt.

Bouwe has already attracted some star dust to Team Brunel with Pete Burling, two-time Olympic medalist and recent America’s Cup winning helm, joining the team for the third part of Leg Zero.
