Volvo Ocean Race Newport Stopover-1

With Newport as the sole North American stopover in the Volvo Ocean Race's nine-month, 45,000 nautical mile feat of endurance, sailors will be visiting from all over New England to show these racers that they can truly call our coastline home.

In the time between now and the morning the Volvo Ocean Race Village opens on May 9, we'll all be finding ways to make these tough-as-nails sailors feel welcome with the help of the awesome teams at Sail Newport and DiscoverNewport. VOR fans have already been doing a fabulous job cheering the racers on from afar via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, but for those within striking distance of Newport the time is nigh to get your floatplans secured to catch the action live and in-person.
