The first location where MTD installed its temporary drinking water fountains was in Alicante, Spain, where the first leg of the world sail competition started on 22 October.

Immediately after the race boats left Allicante MTD shipped the fountains and supporting equipment to the next stopover in Lisbon, Portugal, where the next village was opened on 31 October.

The boats are now on their way to Cape Town, South Africa.
