RORC Transatlantic Race 2018 - Gala Dinner [Back to Gallery]
Crews enjoyed a farewell gala dinner as they gathered at the 18th century Arrecife fortress, Castillo de San José - now an impressive restaurant and contemporary art museum close to Marina Lanzarote.
RORC CEO, Eddie Warden Owen, competing in the race aboard the MOD70 PowerPlay, thanked the Calero family and team at Marina Lanzarote, as well as the Lanzarote and Canary Islands Tourism and Government for their continued support and great hospitality before the start:
“I am really looking forward to my experience with the team on Peter Cunningham’s MOD70 PowerPlay and to seeing you all in Grenada,” said Warden Owen. “Like here in Lanzarote, you will receive a warm welcome when you arrive in Grenada and you’ll have a great end to your race. I wish you a successful journey, a great result and enjoy the race. Good luck to you all.”
During the meal, each team was invited up to have a group photograph and was presented with a gift basket of local produce. José Juan Calero from Calero Marinas explained that he is proud and honoured to be associated with the race and the club: “Thank you to the Royal Ocean Racing Club and to all the teams from around the world who have come to participate in this prestigious Atlantic race. I wish you a good, safe crossing and an enjoyable race.”
