The Volvo Ocean Race embodies the very same principles we set out for ourselves as an automotive maker—advanced design, safety, innovation, strength, endurance, and care for the environment.
AROUND THE WORLD
A marathon of the seas
To reach the finish in June 2015, 66 of the world’s top sailors will race 38,739 nautical miles around the world—almost twice the circumference of the Earth. In seven teams, they’ll cross four oceans and stop in 11 countries in five continents operating a fleet of 65-foot high-tech racing machines.
The Volvo Ocean 65 racing yacht is world-class, high-performance, and tough, built with a human-centric focus, just like our cars.
“The Volvo is a race against the other teams, but primarily you’re racing against yourself. To do the Volvo Ocean Race and to finish is, in itself, a great team accomplishment.”
Shannon Falcone, two-time crew member
