Witness the power of the wind and waves and the sheer speed of the Volvo Ocean Race. This never-before-created RAW 100 video gives you a perspective only the sailors ever really experience.
The Southern Ocean is a place like no other: it’s unfathomably cold and the waves are taller than houses. It’s always grey and the squalls are filled with snow rather than rain. The wind is relentless too – a calm day is anything under 30 knots (55kph). And, every few years, a group of sailors head down to the Roaring 40s (and 50s) in the Volvo Ocean Race to complete the iconic leg from Auckland, NZ to Itaji, Brazil.
