Shore Team

As well as fielding a world class sailing team, ADOR has an outstanding 17-strong shore team to support the sailors as they race around the world.

 From our boatbuilders, sailmakers, riggers and hydraulic experts who keep our racing yacht Azzam running perfectly, to our catering, logistics, finance, sports science specialists, our international shore team is every bit as committed to winning as the sailors.
