The Volvo Ocean Race’s position as a truly global, major sporting event has never been so apparent. In the 2014-15 edition, our boats made 11 stops across five continents, with over 2.4 million visitors entering the Race Villages around the world. There were the old favourites – Cape Town, Auckland, Lisbon – and some new experiences, such as Newport and The Hague.

Needless to say, the route was a great success, and that’s why we’ve already confirmed stopovers in the following cities for the 2017-18 edition:
Alicante (October 2017)
Lisbon
Cape Town
Hong Kong <-> Guangzhou
Auckland
Itajaí
Newport
Cardiff
Gothenburg
The Hague (June 2018)
