The 13th edition of the Volvo Ocean Race started from Alicante, Spain on October 22, 2017 and will finish in The Hague in the Netherlands with a final In-Port Race on June 30, 2018. The teams will visit 12 Host Cities, six continents and cover 45,000 nautical miles from Alicante to Lisbon, Cape Town, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Auckland, Itajaí, Newport, Cardiff, Gothenburg and finally, The Hague.

Keep up-to-date with a race that exceeds all others. Follow the sailors as they compete day and night for more than three weeks at a time, living on freeze-dried food, going to places no-one else goes and facing the toughest weather conditions on the planet. This is Life at the Extreme.

Great App

Deck orangutan

New coverage for 17-18 VOR is disappointing in some areas. Need more OBR reports and videos and less slow-moving, repetitive dialogue from someone who says he doesn't know what he's talking about. He asks an expert to explain, but the whole report is very slow-moving.
Also, it is difficult to find out when live coverage will start. I understand the times of arrival at port are not predictable, but it would be nice to get some idea further in advance so that we know when to start looking for the live broadcast.
The website keeps saying a report will come at 1300 UCT, but then nothing shows up, and it is very dated when it does finally get posted.

First class app.


This is a fantastic app. Rich in content, articles, blogs, team bios and more. Warning, when the race starts, this is downright addicting. Up to the moment maps and race details. To someone who is old enough to remember waiting two weeks for a two sentence update of any kind of sailing race, this is like being onboard the entire way. Bravo.

Crashes often


I have an iPhone 5S. This ap locks up when I select video option and puts me in an endless loop of hitting "back to home" then the only way to recover is to delete the app off my phone and reload it from the App Store. Sometimes it does this when selecting other menu options as well. I've had to do this at least twice a day since the race started
