What is the Volvo Ocean Race?

The Volvo Ocean Race is a long-standing tradition amongst sailors that dates back to 1973. The Volvo Ocean Race is a tough and strenuous yacht race around the world, which is held every three years. Professional sailors train for decades to compete in this iconic race and only the world's best sailors can raise the coveted Volvo Ocean Race Trophy at the end.

How Long Does the Volvo Ocean Race Last?

The 2018 Volvo Ocean Race will cover 45,000 nautical miles before a winner is decided in The Hauge, Netherlands in June 2018. These sailors will have crossed four oceans, seen six continents and touched down in 12 landmark cities around the world before pulling into port in the Netherlands.

When Do the Volvo Ocean Race Teams Arrive in Newport?

The 2018 Volvo Ocean Race teams will stop in Newport, RI, for a brief period on May 9, 2018. The city of Newport will be opening a Volvo Race Village on May 8, 2018, which will remain opened until May 20, 2018, when the sailors depart to finish their last leg of their adventure. Last year, 2.4 million people visited Volvo Race Villages around the world to cheer on their teams, so don't miss your chance to do the same in Newport this May!
