When Team Sanya (Chinese entry in the Volvo Ocean Race) formed only 3 months before the race start they quickly engaged Diverse Yacht Services to cover all of their electronic and electrical needs. Rachel Howe has joined the Team Sanya Shore Team on behalf of Diverse Yacht Services for the duration of the race to fulfil this role.


Diverse had a tight window of only 4 weeks to transform Telefonica Blue into Sanya Lan for the start of the Rolex Fastnet Race. A key part of this project was making a quick and accurate assessment of what was essential and realistic to achieve to fit with the goals, time frame and budget requirements of Team Sanya.


“With such a short time frame I knew there was no margin for error so we have focused on putting together as simple and reliable package as possible for Sanya. I have worked closely with the sailing team and primarily Aksel Magdahl (onboard navigator) to build a solution that fits the team’s overall objectives” says Rachel.


The work list has been extensive and covers a Diverse spectrum:

• Rewiring the yacht
• Upgrading the DC system and onboard charging
• Design and installation of the onboard PC network
• Updating and simplifying the instrument system
• Load cell servicing

Rachel sums up with “This project pretty much sums up to me why someone would entrust a project to Diverse. Much of what has been achieved has only been possible because of the support and backing of the whole team at Diverse and, as ever, this has been a real team effort. The unsung heros, Sophie and Paul, in the office ensured we had all the parts sourced and delivered on time while Ashton has made considerable input on the tools.”
