For the third consecutive edition, each team taking part in sailing's premier offshore race will have on board an embedded multimedia reporter, formerly known as an MCM.

For the 2014-15 edition, each Onboard Reporter must be approved by the Volvo Ocean Race, in a step introduced to make sure all teams make best use of the enhanced media capabilities of the One Design Volvo Ocean 65.

'We're starting the hunt for proven media professionals to tell the real story of this extraordinary race,' said Director of Communications Jon Bramley.

'We need people who can be at the top of their game despite conditions that test even the world's best professional sailors to the core. It's one of the toughest jobs in journalism but also one of the best – and we're looking for outstanding candidates to match.

'We're expecting a lot of great applicants.'

Selected candidates will be required to spend five weeks at the Volvo Ocean Race headquarters in Alicante, Spain for training. Those approved will then be matched up with one of the teams for the pre-Race period plus the event itself.

Interested candidates should send a CV and covering letter to reporters@volvooceanrace.com
