Good Future for Volvo Ocean Race

Last week informed us, that the VolvoOceanRace will continue 2 more versions after the coming one, with the Start from Alicante, Spain.

That is good news for Alicante, as the city enjoys the attention from many Sailors. It is also good news for the VOR Museum, as those additional starts will bring big numbers  of visitors that can enjoy the museum.

The Best message however, imho, is that we will enjoy at least 3 more versions for the VolvoOceanRace, till the VOR 2023-2024 one. 

This is also good news for Virtual Sailors as it is expected that all VOR races will have the VORG(VolvoOceanRaceGame) to sail alongside the professional sailors in your armchair. :) 

For some training on Virtual Sailing, I can recommend LiveSkipper . This is a modern virtual sailing player , with nice interface and quiet easy to learn. It is free as well, including all modern navigational aids ,like auto heading, auto-sail, programmer, WP's , different sails and a lot of enthousiast sailors that will battle it out with you on the waters in different types of boats. Liveskipper has some short sailing races during the weekend, and mostly some long distance Ocean races. Try it out, you will love it!
