It’s not always about the racing, the technology or the plaudits. Sometimes it’s about the feeling of being driven by the wind, the sting of the spray, the hull carving through the water – the simple act of sailing.
Less than five months to the first In-Port Race in Alicante and the teams are gearing up. So far there are five boats in the hands of the best sailors in the world, boats designed to race through some of the most violent conditions on earth.
This is a hard race and the boats are tough, as are the people who sail them. But amongst the hardship, there are also moments of beauty.
And as the anticipation is building, it’s important to remember why sailing is so much more than a sport. It’s a feeling and a passion.
We love sailing. We are the Volvo Ocean Race.
