Chase a Dream | Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15

For the first time in the 40-year history of the Whitbread/Volvo, the race will be contested in a one-design boat. The first of the high-performance Volvo Ocean 65s is now out there sailing while race organisers are working on bringing a full fleet to the start line in Alicante on October 4, 2014.

 “Time goes insanely fast in this race,” Frostad said. “This is the world’s longest sport competition and a nine-month race gives you a strange perspective of time. 

“With a year to go, I feel that we’re really focused on the right things. We closed up the ports quicker this time than we did in the last race, which was great. And except for Newport, we’ve selected ports, which have hosted the race before. Newport is very much a sailing place already and, as for all the other stopovers, we don’t need to do a lot of education there. We’re now focusing on the teams and making everything more cost efficient for the teams.”
