VIDEO: Being an athlete to endure the hardship

Published on September 4th, 2014

The 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race starts October 4 and will take the 7-boat 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 over nearly nine months.

As the members of Team SCA share, the sailors will need to be an athlete on every level from weight lifting to sprinting, to having endurance to keep working at the highest level for 30 days at a time.
