The GreenDragon Team embarked on their 2000 mile qualifier. During the journey, the boat was sailed north to a waypoint of 5932 .2N 020.6W, approximately halfway between the Outer Hebrides and the Faroe Islands, northwest of mainland Scotland.

The crew then headed approximately 200 miles south of Iceland, before heading south to return to their training base in Cork on the south coast of Ireland.

The Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09 will be the 10th running of this ocean marathon. Starting from Alicante in Spain, on 4 October 2008, it will, for the first time, take in Cochin, India, Singapore and Qingdao, China before finishing in St Petersburg, Russia for the first time in the history of the race. Spanning some 37,000 nautical miles, visiting 11 ports over nine months, the Volvo Ocean Race is the world?s premier ocean yacht race for professional racing crews.
