Team Adventure’s four year global program includes both refitting the existing boat and building a new state-of-the-art boat. Finalizing the design, building and sea trialing a new 135 foot giant multihull will take almost two years. The world of maxi-multihull racing is similar to Formula 1; there are only a limited number of skippers and teams that are capable competing at this level. The existing boat once refit will remain one of the fastest maxi-multihulls in existence. We have proven that we can compete in the international arena. The proposed program is as follows:
2011-12 - GLOBAL OUTREACHWhile Team Adventure II is under construction, the current boat will sail the world as a global ambassador for our sponsors and partners.

2012-13 - JULES VERNE & OTHER RECORD ATTEMPTSThe classic round the world, non-stop sailing record.
