The Volvo Ocean Race is an extreme global sailing race and is widely known as the â€˜Everest of Sailing.â€™ The global sailing race kicked off from Alicante, Spain on November 5th, and will conclude in Galway, Ireland, in July 2012. The teams are competing across 39,270 nautical miles through some of the worldâ€™s most treacherous seas. All 6 teams are estimated to arrive into Downtown Miami in 90 days.
The Volvo Ocean Race Miami stopover: Downtown Miami Village is a large scale production and 14-day event taking place in Bicentennial Park. Spanning over 27 acres overlooking the bay in Downtown Miami, the village will provide tourists and the local South Florida community a place to â€œSea and be Seenâ€ with an international and interactive race village that will showcase cultural arts, music entertainment, food, and more. Over 150,000 attendees are expected as Miami is the only North American stopover of this global â€œSuper Bowlâ€ of sailing.
