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 here is the list of stopovers for the 2017-18 edition:
- Cape Town
- Hong Kong
- Newport (RI)
- The Hague
