The 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race starts October 4 and will take the fleet to 11 cities in 11 countries – Spain, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, China, New Zealand, Brazil, United States, Portugal, France, The Netherlands, and Sweden – and will require the teams to cover 38,739 nautical miles. It will be the first edition using the new one design Volvo Ocean 65 racing boats.

On April 24, race competitor Team SCA set off on their first transatlantic passage, sailing from their training base in Lanzarote, Spain to Newport, Rhode Island, USA. Their arrival in Newport on May 7 is to match the timing of when the race comes to Newport in May 2015. Click here for a report.
