Owner and skipper of the boat Christian Wahl says: “I am also very happy to announce a new partnership with Mercy Ships, a partner of the heart, a humanitarian organization with which we share great values, a partnership that will give even more perspectives to this project. ”
Double You Team and Mercy Ships share not only the same strong values (commitment, excellence, team spirit), but also the same vision: to transform lives in depth. Where Double You Team wants to give a chance to a new generation of sailors, Mercy Ships allows thousands of patients a new start in life, restoring their physical integrity.
The Bol d’Or Mirabaud remains a major challenge for the team. Christian Wahl, after achieving the record number of wins in 2018, Christian Wahl dreams of a new record and an 8th victory.
