Newport Volvo Ocean Race


The 2018 Volvo Ocean Race sailed into Newport, Rhode Island for its only North American stop over. Historic Fort Adams Park is the site of most of the festivities.  Dirty Water Media Reporter Ali Reid boarded Heineken’s uniquely decked out vessel to get in on the nautical fun.

The 2018 Volvo Ocean Race is a supreme seafaring adventure that takes this year’s teams 45,000 nautical miles around the world, across four oceans, to six continents and 12 host cities. This elite competition rounds out the sport’s Big Three events alongside the Olympics and America’s Cup. The Volvo Ocean Race is often described as the longest and toughest professional sporting event in the world, as well as sailing’s most difficult team challenge.

This year Heineken Light is a major sponsor of this elite event and also using their Newport, Rhode Island stop as a festive, high profile way to kick off some summer fun in their newly decked out boat!
