Ferran Martinez, a 1988 Olympic Games veteran, is the Mirabaud Sports, Arts & Culture General Manager for Spain.
Will you follow the Vendee Globe? Ferran Martinez: Yes, definitely. I am not a specialist in this discipline, I know more sailors that are involved in the Olympics, so I will be delighted to take a closer interest in this edition of the Vendee Globe. I find that this sort of competition solicits strong values. It is very interesting.
What do you think the necessary qualities are to succeed in this sort of environment? Ferran Martinez: It is a very hard discipline that demands a lot of preparation and aside from the technical prep work, you need to have strong moral fibre and plenty of courage.
