The race started in Alicante on October 2017, and the teams will arrive to Gothenburg around June 2018, for their final stopover before the finishing leg to The Hague in Holland.
Gothenburg is a port city where the sea has always played a vital role and reaches right into the heart of the city. This gives you the opportunity to experience the Volvo Ocean Race from a totally unique perspective.
The party will continue in the Race Village in Frihamnen, where the seven boats will be berth. There will be something here for everyone: stage entertainment, exhibitions, restaurants, bars, a large market place and opportunities to try out various activities. You can easily get to Race Village by foot, by bike or on public transport, by bus or boat. There will be free admission for everyone, so come and enjoy the party!
This will be the twelfth Volvo Ocean Race since the first took place 40 years ago, and it will be the third time the race has come to Gothenburg. This time the Race focuses on sustainability and ocean health, which also will be reflected in the Gothenburg Race Village.
