Endeavour Quay announced that Volvo Ocean Race team, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, has chosen the Gosport facility as its summer race preparation and training facility. Abu Dhabi’s VO70 AZZAM, which means determination in Arabic, arrived last month and is now in one of the large boat sheds ready for some refit work.

Servicing and race preparation work has begun on AZZAM at Endeavour Quay in time for a return to the water and the start line of Cowes Week and the RORC Fastnet Race on August 11.

Last race, AZZAM was the first Arabian-backed contender to take on the Everest of sailing, notching up some key wins including a home victory in Abu Dhabi and the trans-Atlantic blue riband leg from Miami, USA to Lisbon, Portugal. Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing will return for its second Volvo Ocean Race outing next year and the UAE capital will once again host a mega stopover over New Year 2015.
