About Volvo Ocean Race:

The Volvo Ocean Race is quite simply the ‘Everest’ of sailing. During the nine months of the race, the teams will sail 39,270 nautical miles of the globe’s most treacherous seas. 

 

The Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 will be the 11th edition of this iconic sailing regatta and will start in the Spanish port of Alicante in the October of 2011 and finish in Galway, Ireland in July 2012. The course will include stopovers in Cape Town (South Africa), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Sanya (China), Auckland (New Zealand), Itajai (Brazil), Miami (USA), Lisbon (Portugal) and Lorient (France).

 

The race is the ultimate mix of world class sporting competition on the edge adventure and technology.  It is a unique blend of onshore glamour with offshore drama and endurance and is, undeniably, the world’s premier global race and one of the most demanding team sporting events in the world.
