Volvo Ocean Race yachts arrive in Gosport

The first of the Volvo Ocean Race yachts has arrived in Gosport Marina. Welcome to Team AkzoNobel.

Premier Gosport Marina has been selected to host the fleet of Volvo Ocean Race yachts, Volvo Ocean 65s in the build up to the Rolex Fastnet Race. Gosport has been chosen as the host venue for a week of preparation prior to the race start due to its first class facilities, easy access to the Solent and deep water basin. The Volvo Ocean Race teams can also take advantage of the onshore technical facilities available to them at the marina’s specialist boatyard, Endeavour Quay.
