We are sorry The EXPLORER cannot be at the Volvo Ocean Race,
but here are some updates.
As of May 7th, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing is in first
place overall followed by Dongfeng Race Team, Team Brunel, Team Alvimedica,
MAPFRE, Team SCA, and Team Vestas Wind coming in the rear!
As the boats arrived, everyone anxiously waiting their
arrivals cheered and celebrated the kickoff to the Volvo Ocean Race Newport Race Village! The 12 day celebration
starting May 5th, will feature racing off the shore of Fort
Adams, entertainment, a marine Exploration Zone, sponsor pavilions, family
games, a "Life at the Extreme" theater, team compounds, try sailing,
kids activities, concerts and a working boatyard. The race boats will be
docked at Fort Adams for public viewing.
