I love traveling and i love an adventure not dissimilar to most men
I’m sure but there are those that take things that little bit further
in search of that adrenalin rush, and I’m very envious of the guys
competing in The Volvo Ocean Race.
The Volvo Ocean Race is not a race as such, but recording the fastest time between ports. This event pays tribute to the commercial sailors that many years ago battled to get their cargo to its destination on time battling the same fierce difficult conditions those sailors faced those competing have to trust their vessel and the skill of their crew to command it. This contest is now seen as the pinnacle of achievement in the sport. During the nine months of the Volvo Ocean Race, which started in Alicante, Spain in October 2011 and concludes in Galway, Ireland, during early July 2012, the teams will sail over 39,000 nautical miles of the world’s most treacherous seas via Cape Town, Abu Dhabi, Sanya, Auckland, around Cape Horn to Itajaí, Miami, Lisbon, and Lorient. The race is the ultimate mix of world class sporting competition and on the edge adventure, a unique blend of onshore glamour with offshore drama and endurance. It is undeniably the world’s premier global race and one of the most demanding team sporting events in the world.
