During the race, my day typically starts at 4am. I like to be in the air just before 5am. The light can be beautiful and a colourful sunrise is a bonus.

Illbruck is a Volvo 60 built for round-the-world racing. The Volvo 60s’ gave a welcome boost to the Sydney Hobart fleet when the Volvo Ocean Race organisers made our race a part of their yachting programme.
