Volvo Ocean Race


In the November edition of SysNotes, we had an article about the Volvo Ocean Race and the Ericsson Racing Team. Festool is the official power tool supplier of the Ericsson Racing Team and has participated in the world's most demanding ocean race, the Volvo Ocean Race, since 1997. We thought we would update you on the status of the race as it nears its arrival in Boston, Massachusetts and tell you a little more about Festool's involvement in the marine industry. At the time of this writing, the two Ericsson boats are in first and fourth place in the overall standings. Go Team Ericsson!

Discovery Channel recently began airing its newest hit series, Doing DaVinci. The Doing DaVinci team takes some of the revolutionary designs of Leonardo da Vinci and constructs them. These designs were, without doubt, far beyond their time and it's definitely interesting to see these fascinating machines come to life. Interestingly, there is no record of these machines having ever been constructed before now.

This month, SysNotes readers get a peak at some of the cool Festool wares that the professional remodelers and woodworkers saw in January at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas.   In addition to great demos that focused on sanding, sawing, drilling, routing, and trim carpentry, visitors were able to see some of our new products coming out this spring.  The new Parallel Guide, EHL 65 E one-handed planer, and T+3 Lithium Ion cordless drill sets created great anticipation for their availability later this year.
