Abu Dhabi Racing Team is a strong team with a boat they call Azzam. Azzam is the arabic word for determination.
They are showing a couple of youtube videos on their sight. Here is one where Adil Khalid explains most of the features on the boat. Gives you a good view of some equipment onboard.
Team Brunel got many skilled sailers in their team this year. This is the third time they join the race. Brunel is a recruiting firm from Netherlands. I think they use the race to get custeomers and consulytants in an amusing way. They show consultants in tie getting water all over behind the wheel on a boat. Check it out on getonboard.nu.At the moment they got nearly 1400 jobs on their website. If you need a job then drop a cv on english.brunel.nl
