    I am very thrilled to have the chance to join this race. I put a lot of faith in Kevin, who is one of the most experienced person in offshore sailing. I have always been always driven by the adventure and have experience in working focus toward goals. This race is a new first for me: an ocean race around the world, with a new crew, on a new boat. Joining the team is a nice Christmas present!Abby EhlerCrew
