the ocean race

VIP hospitality at the world’s most premier off-shore yacht race.


The Ocean Race, formerly the Volvo Ocean Race, is the world’s premier off-shore yacht race around the world, and the longest and toughest sailing competition worldwide. It is an exceptional test of sailing prowess.

Held every three years for over 37 years, the race typically starts in Europe in October and has various ports of call, with in-port races at many of the stop-over cities. The race attracts a TV audience of over 2 billion people worldwide.

For the last ten years the race has started in Alicante in Spain. The last Ocean Race involved a gruelling 46,000 nautical miles later – the longest course in the history of the competition – and an unforgettable finish in the Netherlands.

The Hague’s 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race Finish was not just a global sporting celebration but a major B2B platform: the event is now ranked among the top three sailing events in the world. And the next edition set for 2021 promises to be even bigger, with another class of racing boats competing for the first time.

The 2021 edition will involve two classes of boats racing: the high-tech, foiling IMOCA 60s and the one-design VO65 fleet that provided the closest race in the history of the event in the last edition.
