Human Made Stories
In parallel with Volvo's values of innovation, sustainability, craftsmanship and design, Human Made Stories conveys the Volvo philosophy to always put people first by telling the stories of three defiant pioneers: people who inherently do things differently, challenge conventions and create their own path.
4 New World Records
Professional kitesurfers – Steph Bridge and sons Olly (18) and Guy (16) – took to the waters around the Isle of Wight on 30 June 2016 on their foiling kitesurf boards. Travelling the 50 nautical miles around the coastline of the Island on the south coast of the UK, they averaged speeds between 16 and 20 knots.
Guy was first around the island in a time of 2 hours 32 minutes and 25 seconds, averaging speeds of 19.68 knots, with the World Sailing Speed Record (WSSR) Council confirming that Guy is now officially the Fastest Kitesurfer around the Isle of Wight. He also set the record for the Fastest Singlehanded Sailor around this island at the same time
Banbury Sailing Club Open Day
It was a great family day out and we were especially delighted that so many of our customers came along on the day to try their hands at sailing. And the weather was kind to us too!
Big thanks to everyone at Banbury Sailing Club and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
Driving with a difference
We were joined at Stratford-upon-Avon's Welcombe Golf Course by 72 of our loyal customers for a wonderful day of golf.
However we didn't want to be separated from our beloved Volvo cars for too long, so we also brought along a selection of vehicles including the all-new XC90. A great opportunity to see how much space there is in the boot for golf clubs!
After some bogeys and birdies, the day finished with a buffet and prize-giving for nearest the pin and the longest drive.
Thanks to everyone who made the day so enjoyable. We will look forward to seeing you at our next event.
