Volvo Ocean Race: Camper - the ride so far + Video
Fri, 22 Jun 2012
Some eight months ago the 2011/12 Volvo Ocean Race got underway in Alicante, Spain. Since then it has been roller-coaster ride for Camper with plenty of ups, a few downs, some amazing sailing and a heap of fun.
With only one leg and two in-port races left to go here’s a quick look back at some of the highlights of the campaign to date – from injuries in the Atlantic and a visit from King Neptune, to a rapturous welcome home in Auckland, and a sublime in-port performance, to the thrill of Southern Ocean sailing, the despair of a broken bow, and the determination of a Puerto Montt pit stop.
It’s all here mainly thanks to the amazing work of Camper’s MCM Hamish Hooper.
