AREVA Challenge already on water @ Valencia Sailing
 
It was a very encouraging sight what we witnessed on Friday noon in Port America's Cup. A mere 48 hours had passed since the re-born AREVA Challenge arrived in Valencia from their temporary base in Gandia and the team were already out for their first sail. With just a month left till the next Louis Vuitton Acts, the French America's Cup challenger can't waste any moment now that it has the support of such a strong energy group. Now that the French are back testing and sailing the only teams left to sail their boat in Valencia this year are Emirates Team New Zealand and China Team.
