Something about him that you don't know: Nicknamed "Patan", Pablo competed in the 2004 Olympic Games with Roberto "Chuny" Bermúdez de Castro.
He speaks: Spanish and English
Who is he: Already with an Olympic Games under his belt by the time he met Bouwe Bekking and made his debut in the race with Telefónica Blue in 2008-09, Pablo is a keen sportsman. In 2011-12 Pablo returned as helmsman for Team Telefónica, followed by jumping onboard Team Brunel in the last edition.
What he said: “I did the race twice thanks to the Under-30 programme. I’m over 30 now and to be asked by MAPFRE to be number two to Xabi Fernandez, I’m extremely proud. I feel confortable offshore and I like tough sailing conditions. Being at sea for nine months is something I enjoy. Bring on the next edition.”
