Lisbon is hosting the race for a third consecutive edition and this time it’s with a bit of a twist.
Since 2016, the city has been home to the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard, a permanent facility where our team of boatbuilding experts have been working round the clock to prepare the fleet for the 2017-18 edition. Don’t miss the chance to check out the Boatyard at the Race Village while you’re here on a visit. It’s a fascinating look at just how much work goes into getting the boats ready to race.
Race Village opening: 31 October 2017
In-Port Race: 3 November 2017
Leg Start: 5 November 2017
