The race to the horizon
The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
A life at sea
In this article we meet Swedish sailor, Martin Strömberg. Martin is now one of Sweden’s most experienced sailors. He has now competed in the Volvo Ocean Race three times and won it once. We describe how Martin first became interested in the Volvo Ocean Race, his drive to compete in the race and how he came to triumph. We also provide an overview of his sailing career so far, his unique approach to putting racing teams together and what the future holds for this modern Swedish pioneer.
