We will also be dockside and encourage visitors to meet us at the Shipyard for a spirited welcome with food and cold Heineken for the team who has been eating freeze-dried casseroles!!

Volvo Ocean Race Newport Stopover, May 2015: The race boats are expected to arrive in the U.S. in the first week of May 2015. A 12-day public festival will celebrate the stopover, with the massive race boats on display at Sail Newport in Fort Adams State Park.

A shore side sailing village within yards of the boats at dock will be open to the public, free of charge, where visitors will be able to see the international team compounds and the operations of the shore teams in technical and sail loft areas.

In addition, the sailing village will include marine education experiential and interactive exhibits, entertainment, a food festival, the Heineken Beer Garden, car and truck displays and sponsor pavilions.

During the Newport Stopover in May of 2015, all of the boats will also participate in training, pro-am and in-shore racing within yards of the shoreline for optimal spectator viewing during the festival at Fort Adams State Park. Expert commentary will also provide an entertaining spectator opportunity for families who visit the race village.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-2015: The Race will start in October 2014 from Alicante, Spain on its 38,739-nautical mile route with stopovers in Cape Town (South Africa), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Sanya (China), Auckland (New Zealand), Itajai (Brazil) and then Newport. After an approximate two-week stay in Newport, Rhode Island, USA, the fleet then races from Newport to Lisbon (Portugal) and then Lorient (France). After Lorient, a 24-hour pit stop will be made in the Hague (Netherlands) and then the teams will make their final sprint to the finish line in Gothenburg (Sweden), the Swedish home of Volvo, in July of 2015.
