The next VolvoOceanRace 2017-2018 is going to get real.
Last week, I was learning that the Route for VOR 2017-2018 is agreed and it is promising to become a very challenging version of this VOR. Some new Cities are announced and the number of nautical miles through the Southern Ocean has never been as large.
This morning, the 1st participating team TEAM AkzoNobel was published.
Skipper will be the dutchman Simeon Tienpont, who participated 3 times before in the VolvoOceanRace.
