Dongfeng Race Team, a team from China backed by Dongfeng Commercial Vehicle and run by leading sailing management company OC Sport, is competing in the 12th edition of the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15.
 
Dongfeng means “the eastern wind” and this ambitious Chinese team, skippered by Frenchman Charles Caudrelier, is represented by a crew that is half Chinese, half international.
 
Dongfeng Race Team follows Team Sanya (2011-12) and Green Dragon (2008-09) as the third Chinese entry in the race’s 40-year history, the latter a joint-entry with Ireland.
 
Setting out from Alicante, Spain, seven world-class crews are embarking on the grueling nine month race. Since the very first Volvo Ocean Race left port in 1973, the competition has earned itself a reputation as a demanding test of endurance and skill –the current race is sure to be no exception.
 
Dongfeng Race Team, like the rest of the fleet, is sailing in the new One-Design Volvo Ocean 65, which means they have exactly the same boat and competitive opportunities as anyone in the race.
 
 
The race is broken into legs and in the 2014-15 Race there are nine of them, with the boats crossing four oceans (Atlantic, Pacific, Indian and Southern Oceans) and visiting 11 countries in five continents: Spain, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, China, New Zealand, Brazil, United States, Portugal, France, The Netherlands and Sweden.
 
Leg 1 and the adventure begins at Alicante, Spain.

The 3rd Leg gets underway with teams departing from Abu Dhabi, UAE and sailing approximately 4,670 nautical miles to Sanya, China. Currently, Dongfeng Race Team continue to hold the edge in Leg 3 of the Volvo Ocean Race with the rest of the fleet bunched up behind and waiting for the opportunity to pounce.

Missing from the images they sent was the replica gucci boy bag, which was one of the stand-out bags of the collection. The minute I spotted it from on the runway, I loved it and knew many of you would be intrigued as well. Luckily, if that bag is what you fancy, I come bearing good news: I spoke with gucci PR, and they confirmed this replica handbags will be produced and available in boutiques in two sizes.
Though the mini version was not bought by the boutiques, Chanel did pick up the medium and large size. If you are interested in either of these, I’d suggest calling your local boutique or replica michael kors customer service to get your name on a list; based on the limited number of seasonal bags the brand makes available every season and the positive response so far, they are sure to sell out quickly.

Charles Caudrelier is a great leader and inspires the rest of the sail team to achieve great heights. I have heard about the Dongfeng team in bigbang dissertation.com and they are fabulous. I especially admire the team work amongst all men who hail from different nationalities.
