Örn (SWE63) arrives in Valencia

Posted on 31 May 2005 by Valencia Sailing

The first boat of the Swedish syndicate Victory Challenge arrived in Valencia’s Darsena yesterday afternoon. Örn, as she’s called, has now reached her new home at the team’s base in the Darsena, together with the masts.

She will be prepared by the base team during the following days and it is expected to put her into the water on Friday or Saturday.

Unfortunately, Valencia Sailing was not able to be present but thanks to the friendly collaboration of the team’s press officer, Bert Willborg, we have the opportunity to view excellent photos from yet another yacht arrival in the Darsena.

Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more coverage of the activities in the world’s sailing capital

Like all other boats that arrived in Valencia, SWE63 came atop a heavy-duty truck. The Darsena will get extremely busy during the next two weeks as more boats are expected to arrive
