Over the next nine months, our nine brave sailors will be circumnavigating the globe in one of the toughest ocean challenges known to mankind. Today, we open the doors of our pavilion to the general public in Alicante, and indeed to the rest of you around the world, as we present our new website and blog.
We joined the Volvo Ocean Race late in the game, but our committed sailing, shore and commercial teams have come a long way in two months. Winning the Leg 0 race three weeks ago really did mean the world to all onboard and onshore – it was a demanding challenge but we were extremely satisfied and encouraged by the great result achieved by the Team. This was our first true taste together of “life at the extreme”, a challenge overcome ahead of this weekend’s in-port race in Alicante and next week’s Leg 1 to Cape Town.
Our goal is to keep you close to all the action online as hundreds of thousands of visitors roll into the Race Villages and the seven teams compete on the 11 legs of the Race.
So #jointherace with #TeamVestas today! Meet our crew, keep up with the latest photos and videos of the race and make your pledge towards a more sustainable future. This is a race we must win.
Thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you and hearing from you as we make our way around the world.
