2017-12-08T22:00:00Z17 daysThroughout the V&A Waterfront PropertyThe Volvo Ocean Race is often described as the longest and toughest professional event in the world, sailing’s premier round-the-world race – and as one of the sport’s Big Three events, along with the Olympics and America’s Cup. Put simply, the Volvo Ocean Race is an obsession, and many of the world’s best sailors have dedicated years, decades even, in trying to win it. The race sits, just as it always has, at the intersection of human adventure, and world class competition. For the eleventh time, the V&A will be hosting the Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) in Cape Town. The 17 day event is a platform to showcase the South African Maritime and Ocean sectors to both local and international audiences. Not only is Cape Town the stopover’s most sought-after location but the V&A Waterfront’s involvement with the popular event will see a roll-out of educational programmes and projects to promote environmental sustainability and resilience, called the Ocean Life Festival. <div class="ExternalClass429085086592419CA8285F5088C83AF7"><div>For the eleventh time, the V&A will be hosting the Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) in Cape Town.
