Skipper was again Pedro Campos, who reinforced the team with the 2-time Olympic gold medalist Luis Doreste. With the multinational combine ENDESA (electrical power supplier)  the team won  a strong sponsor. Designer of the ESP-47 was Rolf Vrolijk, who worked 2003 and 2007 as chief designer for Alinghi.
