Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09, Galway Stopover


2009 will go down in the annals of off-shore racing as the year that everyone else found out something that Irish people have known for a while - Galwegians know how to throw a party! From the arrival of seven tired crews to be greated by a crowd of thousands in the early hours of the morning, to their departure followed by a jubilant flotilla of supporters and spectators two weeks later, the City of the Tribes left it's mark on the Volvo Ocean Race and was heaped with praise from all sides as one of the most inclusive, entertaining and successful stopovers in the race's illustrious history.
