Happy birthday Ryan!

 

 

Kiwi Ryan Houston, watch captain on Team Alvimedica, turns 32 today and is celebrating in Alicante, Spain, just five days before the fleet departs on Leg 1 to Capetown, South Africa.

 

This will be the third consecutive Volvo Ocean Race for the Kiwi who - like crewmate Dave Swete - is a graduate of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron's youth programme.

 

“I’m a proud New Zealander. Full-stop,” says Ryan. “To be involved with the Volvo Ocean Race as a Kiwi is to carry on a legacy and it’s very special to me. All Kiwi sailors grew up watching the Volvo Ocean Race. It’s always been something I’ve wanted to do. To get the opportunity for a senior role in this team is exciting for me."
