MAPFRE Global Risks was in Cardiff supporting the team in the last stages of the Challenge and sharing activities.
A team of the Global Risks Unit and close collaborators of the company in UK, experienced in situ some of the activities scheduled by the organizers of the Volvo Ocean Race, as well as talks arranged during this scale.
MAPFRE is now second in the general classification just a point behind the Dongfeng, and with two points over the Brunel, who is third, and faces these days to a close battle for the final victory in the last two stages, Cardiff to Gothenburg, and from there to The Hague.
On June 10, MAPFRE left Cardiff as the leader sailing north, in the tenth stage of the Volvo Ocean, a 1,300-nautical-mile sprint between Cardiff and Gothenburg, and will navigate along the coast of Wales, then go up to the north of Scotland, descend south to the North Sea, circle the south end of Norway and continue east towards Gothenburg.
The MAPFRE team point out before the departure that they will give their all percent to take the lead again and fight to the end for the victory in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18.
As Xabi Fernandez wrote a few days ago in his logbook, “On board all good and pushing hard.”
The Spanish team is more united than ever. It is a team committed from start to finish in this competition.
For our company, the Committed Team translates as follows:
“Full involvement of employees, managers, agents and other collaborators with the MAPFRE project and sustained development of the capabilities and skills of the team.”
Come on MAPFRE! Global Risks encourages strongly the team in these decisive miles for the final victory!
