The Volvo Ocean Race is on its round-the-world blitz again
The Volvo Ocean Race 2014-’15 began October 11 and finishes next June in Gothenburg, Sweden, by way of the ends of the earth.
By then, the seven boats will have sailed 38,739 miles from Alicante, Spain, visiting 11 ports on five continents.
Newport, Rhode Island, their seventh port, brings them closest to us, early next May.
The seven entries come from around the world — United Arab Emirates, China, Turkey and four from Europe — but not from the Americas.
