During last week's 39th Heineken Regatta, all eyes were on The Polish National Fund's Volvo 70 I Love Poland (formerly Puma). The team is comprised of ocean racing veterans, Olympians, and promising under 30's who The Polish National Fund hopes to train into the next generation of ocean racing champions. After months of training together and 12,000 miles at sea, the Heineken was the team's first regatta and I Love Poland was unstoppable on the water. The project's sea operation manager, Darek Pekala, sat down with SAIL's associate editor Lydia Mullan to talk about the race, building the team and the future of Polish sailing.
