Volvo Ocean Race Leg Start Experience
The Volvo Ocean Race is the toughest sailing race in the world and the inherent dangers of ocean racing are something all sailors and their families are acutely aware of. The Leg Start is the time when our teams say goodbye to their loved ones and set sail for the next leg of the Volvo Ocean Race. There is an official dock out show, with local entertainment, a Sailors Parade, live interviews on the dock, and a blessing of the fleet. The teams complete a fast-paced lap, similar to the In-Port Race course, before setting off for the next Leg of the race.
