GV06 Brasil 1, BRA 1
à jour au: 2009
2005 plan Farr, constructed by Marco Landi’s ML Boatworks, in Indaiatuba, a small city near São Paulo in Brazil

2004 17 décembre, The boat is being constructed by Marco Landi’s ML Boatworks, in Indaiatuba, a small city near São Paulo in Brazil. Former sailor and engineer, Landi is one of the most respected boat builders in Brazil. He worked in Europe for three years, learning the secrets from some of the most prestigious European boat builders.

2005 Brasil 1 has left the ML Boats shipyard, in Indaiatuba and is on her way to Rio de Janeiro. The trip will take approximately three days.

24 aout, Brasil 1 was waved off by a fleet of 130 boats packed with well-wishers and a blast of cannon fire on Saturday as it embarked on its 4,000 nautical mile voyage to qualify as the first Brazilian boat in history to take part in the Volvo Ocean Race.

4 janvier, Problème de structure pour Brasil 1, c’était au tour du Team Brasil 1 de porter à la connaissance de l’organisation que son bateau avait souffert d’un “crack” (non précisé à cette heure) et qu’il rentrait sur l’Afrique du Sud. Le bateau naviguait alors au près dans des conditions de navigation difficiles. Il semble que l’avarie porterait sur la structure de la coque au niveau du pont.

Spanish Team,
2007
Mai, Mystery boat, It looks like Brasil 1... This boat definitely isn't the Farr designed former Brasil 1 moored up in Alicante harbour. Nor has it been bought by a leading Spaniard as the training boat for a new Spanish two boat fully crewed round the world race campaign. Nor has this formerly mono ruddered vessel been fitted with twin rudders. Nor for that matter do we remember Brasil 1 having chines... Deny deny deny.
16 octobre, While quiet, the Spanish team is far from idle. The Farr office are working their magic on the design of the new boats - they will definitely have two boats - and Bekking says they continue to take blocks of time to go out training on the modified Brasil 1, which, as we revealed last year, has been fitted with chines in her hull (like the late movistar) and twin rudders (like the ABN AMRO boats). Bekking himself has otherwise had a busy year driving Jose Cusi's TP52 Bribon on the Breitling MedCup circuit to racing on Farr 40 circuit with former World Champion Jim Richardson and Prince Frederik of Denmark.
