The return of the Extreme 40s
In each port, the racing will take place between the in-port race weekend and the leg start weekend. In the previous Volvo, the Extreme 40 series included over 80 races, in five countries, during seven months.
Knut Frostad, Chief Executive Officer of the Volvo Ocean Race, said: “The inclusion of the Extreme 40s is based on the excitement the series generated in 2005-06.
“At stopovers during the previous Volvo, the Extreme 40s provided some fantastic racing and they are sure to catch the eye of visitors to the race village again this time round.”
