Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18.


The 2017–18 Volvo Ocean Race is the 13th edition of the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race. It started in Alicante, Spain on 22 October 2017, and will conclude in The Hague, Netherlands 30 Jun 2018.

Team AkzoNobel is a brand-new Dutch ocean racing team backed by leading global paints and coatings company, AkzoNobel.
The 2017–18 Volvo Ocean Race grand finale located in The Hague in June 2018. So the team AkzoNobel sailors will finally race into their home port.

Dongfeng

COUNTRY: China

Dongfeng Race Team are back for a second time at the Volvo Ocean Race. They lead by a French skipper Charles Caudrelier. The Dongfeng team finished on third place in 2014-15. It was impressive performance
This time, the team is 100% backed by Dongfeng Motor Corporation, the Chinese motor manufacturer headquartered in the Hubei province city of Wuhan.

Caudrelier’s mixed crew will again include Chinese sailors – and the French skipper has boosted his squad with world-class offshore ocean racers from around the globe.

Vestas are back in the Volvo Ocean Race. This time, their campaign is being run in full partnership with 11th Hour Racing, a programme of The Schmidt Family Foundation working to implement real change on marine health.
