"I have been working with Javier on many sailing projects and as well he has been my personal media manager. I have met a lot of other people in this part of the media business, but none are as talented, hard working and having an eye for the final touches/details as him. Another very important aspect are his human skills. Javier can work with anybody, and he is is able to adapt to all different kind of scenario’s and always optimistic. He is not a person who will quickly say No, and if that happens he will have a very good reason for it, plus he can explain it perfectly why he has come to that decision."

"The Volvo Ocean Race worked with Javier Sobrino in both the 2011-12 and 2014-15 editions. His knowledge of the Spanish media market is comprehensive and he boasts one of the best contact lists of any PR professional I know. He offers a wealth of ideas, expertise and experience, especially in the nautical arena, great knowledge of social media, and additionally is a complete team player. He is equally at home working in English or his native Spanish."
