The Volvo Ocean Race (formerly Whitbread Round the World Race) is owned by Volvo Cars and Volvo Group and began in 1973. This around-the world yacht race takes place every 3 years and teams competing in the 2014-15 & 2017/18 races will be using the Volvo Ocean 65, a 65-foot monohull designed by Farr Yacht Design.

The 2014/15 race spans four oceans, five continents and nearly 40,000 nautical miles.

The route includes in-port races in 10 cities throughout Spain, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, China, New Zealand, United States, Portugal, France and Sweden.

The Race will start on October 4, 2014, day of the first In-Port Race in Alicante, and finish with a final In-Port Race on June 27, 2015 in Gothenburg, the Swedish home of Volvo.

The start of the race will see the brand new Volvo Ocean 65 racing boats sail from Alicante in Spain to Recife on the north east tip of Brazil over 3,421 nm. From there, the teams will sail the longest leg of the race, making their first dive into the Southern Ocean on their way to Abu Dhabi (9,707 nm) before heading to Sanya in China (4,670 nm).

As in the last race, the boats will sail from Sanya to Auckland, New Zealand (5,264 nm). From the City of Sails they will leave for Itajaí in Brazil (6,776 nm) before going north to Newport, Rhode Island in the United States (5,010 nm). The teams will then cross the Atlantic to Lisbon (2,800 nm) and stop in Lorient (647 nm) before the final run to the finish around the British Isles to Gothenburg (1,600 nm).
