No one has sailed more miles in the Volvo Ocean Race than Team Brunel skipper Bekking, who made his first appearance as a crew member on Philips Innovator back in 1985-86.
More than 30 years on, and now aged 54, Bekking’s Volvo Ocean Race obsession has only intensified – and he’s still chasing an elusive first win.
Team backers include Brunel, the Dutch-based global project management, recruitment and consultancy company, and its founder Jan Brand. Brunel are Volvo Ocean Race veterans themselves, having had their first involvement in 1997-98, and they’re the fourth major sponsor to return for a second consecutive edition in 2017-18, alongside MAPFRE, Dongfeng and Vestas.
