Route 2017-18

Route 2017-18

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!
