Mark Towill Previews the 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race

The anticipation of this year's Volvo Ocean Race has been building since Charlie Enright and I finished the last edition with Team Alvimedica. After winning the final leg of the race, the progress shown by our "young gun" team motivated us to get back in it to win it. This time we have surrounded ourselves with experience to form Vestas 11th Hour Racing with the ultimate goal of winning the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race.
