The Volvo Ocean Race is the world’s toughest and longest ocean race.
Six boats started in Alicante Spain October 2011 and the finishing line is in Galway Ireland July 2012.
On their way around the world, the first boat Team Telefonica (Spain) arrived here in Cape Town on the 26th Nov after it's first leg from Alicante.
Here in Cape Town I had the pleasure of following the In-Port Race on board the Spirit of Victoria.
