Adventure Cat Mascot Has Been Determined!

After tough negotiations and lots of time off working on the actual preparation for the Pacific Cup 2010, Adventure Cats selects the lucky winner for the mascot position on the vessel. Grommit, the cat, has the honors. Grommit is a pixie bob breed cat, as was previously determined by Julianne Wutke, that is known for its "head butting, ball fetching and playing, leash walking, highly intelligent and capable of understanding some human words and phrases." Grommit, being a very particular cat is also very loving and loyal. Team believes that all of these characteristics make up the core of its values and will inevitably lead to success. Mascot is at this time incorporated into the team logo can be seen wearing traditional sailing wear Telnyashka and Captain's hat with boat's name "Victoria" written across.
