Published on July 31st, 2014
The Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, which starts August 10 from Cowes, UK, will include five Volvo Ocean Race teams: Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, Alvimedica, Dongfeng Race Team, Team SCA and Team Campos. The 1802nm course around the breathtaking coastline of Britain and Ireland will be the most significant competitive test for the fleet of Volvo Ocean 65s. In the 2010 edition, the Volvo 70 Groupama took monohull line honors and set the monohull course record of 5 days, 21 hours and 26 minutes, before going on to win the 2010-11 Volvo Ocean Race.
