In-Port race, Volvo Ocean Race in Gothenburg

 

From 20th to 27th of June Gothenburg in Sweden hosted the final stop for Volvo Ocean Race 2015. The sponsors of the race together with participants threw a festival in honour of the event, celebrating the homecoming of the sailors.

On the 27th of June the in-port race was held for the inhabitants of the host city.

Here are some photos we manage to take during the beginning of the race. As the weather in Gothenburg was its usual wonderful self with grey skies, cold rain and all the unpleasantries that come with it, we only managed to stay for an hour or so before we started to freeze.

Just to give you some taste of how it was, here is the photo from that day that speaks for itself:

  1. We have also been on the race. Luckily we were located so that we could see the boats closer. Wonderful photos by the way
