With the new boats launching and the teams preparing for this year’s Volvo Ocean Race, let us take a look back, way back to the race’s debut, 1973.
It seems that this race was a bit more laid back then, card games, leather sofas, laundry parties on the aft deck, I guess it is all about keeping the moral high.
I can’t wait for this winter to be over, but at the same time I am looking forward to October 2014…
And just for fun…….check out the race’s first all female crew in 1989 aboard the 58′ sloop ‘Maiden’. They didn’t do so hot, but definitely looked the part.
