Last week we took care of all the land arrangements for a group of VIP guests from Team Brunel during the Volvo Ocean Race.
The Volvo Ocean Race is a gruelling race around the world that tests even the hardest and most experienced sailors. Huge sea, strong winds and icy temperatures are experienced during the event and this is what makes it the holy grail of ocean racing.
