Anyone who’s been following the current Volvo Ocean Race will have been amazed by the quality of reporting coming off the boats. Since October, the onboard media guys like Amory, Nick and Hoops have been doing an incredible job putting us in the picture during some of the closest racing ever. Nowhere have the improvements been more noticeable than with video and photo quality. Throw into the mix the great inshore images being pushed out by the likes of PT Todd and Ian Roman and it’s obvious that in addition to being one of the best covered, it’s been one of the best looking races ever.
Now the guys at Race HQ are putting the best of the best into one, high quality package called 39270, the official book of the 2011-12 race. Referring to the longest route ever set in the race’s 40 year history, 39270 will drop October 29 – the anniversary of the race start. For those that want to save on shipping and waiting, it’s available for pre-ordering now!
