If you haven’t been down to the V&A Waterfront this week to catch a glimpse at the 7 beautiful yachts berthed there then you only have a few more days to do so!
The Volvo Ocean Race kicks off in Cape Town on the 19 November 2014 where the 7 yachts and their crew will sail out of Cape Town on the next leg of a 9 month long epic ocean race around the world. It is the ultimate sailing event.

Die Kaap word weer Hollands
Schouten Global, whose head office in Holland, is co-sponsor of the Brunel Team who are racing the Dutch Boat – Schouten focuses on soft skill training and coaching skills.
Schouten Global coaches the Team Brunel for the duration of the Volvo Ocean Race – as all participating boats are identical, the skipper and his crew are the decisive factors in winning the grueling race.
Oyster King is by origin a Dutch concept and oysters a delectable ocean delicacy so it was a natural fit that Oyster King be included in their corporate hospitality event.
And as herring is a favourite dish of the Dutch we have developed a new concept especially for the occasion – meet our Dutch Herring Queen.
Served on Dutch rye bread with beautiful piece of Herring and finely chopped onions – guests felt they were home away from home.
A huge good luck and Bon Voyage to all the participating boast and crews!
All in all a very exciting time to be at The Waterfront. Check out the Volvo Ocean Race website for details – but the boats leave on Wednesday folks! Come down and see them off!
