LA CIOTAT, France — After scuba divers checked the supporting mounts, a massive submerged boat elevator slowly raised the 661-ton, 51-meter-long yacht M/Y Sky clear of the Mediterranean, gradually revealing its black matte hull.

Fiestas navideñas, comidas familiares y siestas en el sofá. Los navegantes de la Barcelona World Race también son humanos y disfrutan de estos placeres, antes de zarpar el próximo miércoles, 31 de diciembre, para dar la vuelta al mundo a dos y sin escalas.
