Anna Corbella: "We've sailed together so much that Gerard and I already think alike"

Anna Corbella well known in her home country as the first Spanish woman to circumnavigate the world nonstop and unassisted. But the slightly shy Catalan woman who misses her beach walks with her Golden Retriever dog as much as anything or anyone when she is at sea, is almost embarrassed at her recognition, and even more the strapline... ”the first Spanish woman to…”

Gerard Marin: "For us the key will be to maintain a high, even pace"

"I think that having done the Barcelona World Race before gives a completely different perspective at this point." So says Gerard Marin who raced around the world in 2010-2011 with Ludovic Aglaor on a passage which was very much a learning, voyage of discovery. Now four years on the former dinghy world champion feels he is ready to race, talking cautiously of a podium place as he partners Anna Corbella. He is still just 32 years old and is looking forwards to racing on GAES Centros Auditivos in the Barcelona World Race.

Día de reparaciones, noche plácida

Anna Corbella y Gerard Marín (GAES Centros Auditivos):

Hola a todos desde el GAES
Aquí estamos intentando sobrevivir a esta calma, tenemos entre 2 y 6 nudos y no nos podemos quejar, porque el barco anda.
Noche de luna llena que parece que sea de día, se agradece, porque se ven las rachas en el agua.
Hoy ha sido un día de reparaciones varias, sólo llevamos 4 días de regata y ya teníamos una lista de cosas a reparar, y de momento todo arreglado. Es como si acabásemos de salir de Barcelona otra  vez.
En el estrecho chocamos varias veces con objetos flotantes que hicieron disparar los timones, y las consecuencias de esto es todo lo que hemos arreglado ahora.
Por lo demás todo ok, dormimos y comemos bien, y la temperatura hoy ya empieza a estar bien durante el día.
Un saludo!
