Albert Medina, farewell to a faithful and enthusiastic friend
Albert Medina, TV3 - Television of Catalonia sports features director and enthusiastic collaborator of the Barcelona World Race left us yesterday. The whole team of the Barcelona Foundation for Oceanic Sailing (FNOB) and offshore sailing followers owe much to him.
Albert was part of the great family that made the dream of creating the first double-handed, non-stop, round the world regatta come true, an event that put Barcelona among the capitals of the highest competition sailing. His ideas, his eternal good humor and his unfailing spirit of collaboration always helped us overcome difficulties and improve our work.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. We will miss you mate!
