An amazing achievement for the team!

The 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race will call at 12 ports, taking sailors and fans on a 45,000-nautical-mile race around the world, bringing the race to many of Vestas’ most important markets, from Europe to South Africa, China, Brazil and the USA. 

The race finishes in June 2018, with a special final leg passing through the home of Vestas’ headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark, in a mark of the course event as the boats make their way to the grand finale in The Hague.
