The Volvo Ocean Race’s position as a truly global, major sporting event has never been so apparent.
In the 2014-15 edition, our boats made 11 stops across five continents, with over 2.4 million visitors entering the Race Villages around the world.
There were the old favourites – Cape Town, Auckland, Lisbon – and some new experiences, such as Newport and The Hague.
Needless to say, the route was a great success, and that’s why we’ve already confirmed stopovers in the following cities for the 2017-18 edition:
- Alicante, Spain
- Auckland, New Zealand
- Cape Town, South Africa
- Newport, Rhode Island, USA
- Cardiff, Wales
- Gothenburg, Sweden
- Lisbon, Portugal
Stay tuned for further updates and announcements – who knows, the Volvo Ocean Race might visit a town near you!
