More stars for leg 7

The full crew lists are revealed for tomorrow's transatlantic leg of the Volvo Ocean Race

Saturday April 27th 2002, Author: James Boyd, Location: Transoceanic
The round of crew changes for tomorrow's seventh leg of the Volvo Ocean Race have been announced and are notably less than previous legs.Gunnar Krantz's SEB have a change of rock star. They are swapping multiple Star champion for Prada afterguard Gavin Brady (right). Brady was interviewed on madforsailing this week and is a man better known for match racing although he took part in the last race aboard George Collins' Chessie Racing. It will be interesting to see if his talent can help turn Krantz's campaign around. Assa Abloy sees the return of the talented Spaniard Guillermo Altadill, who has been off the boat recently because his father has been severely ill. The crew will no doubt be grilling poor Guillermo about his recent transatlantic trip with the mixed crew of Maiden II.

There have been a few surprise crew changes during the Volvo Ocean Race. After his stepping off News Corp in Rio, the hard-as-nails Kiwi Jeff Scott (Scotty) returns this time on board djuice with their Dutch support navigator and meteorologist Wouter Verbraak back on the shore. Similarly illbruck are leaving Ian Moore ashore this leg and bring back Irish sailmaker/trimmer/helm Noel Drennan and News Corp have replaced their meteorologist Nick White with Ross Field's son Campbell.

On Tyco veteran sailmaker Grant Spanhake is being replaced for the leg by North NZ nipper Richard Meacham.
