Volvo Ocean Race
The storied Volvo Ocean Race is one of the world’s most formidable, extreme global nautical adventures, and in 2009, the competition made its only North American stopover at Boston’s Fan Pier. The three-week race village at Fan Pier was a center of celebration, food, drink, music, fun, and recreation. Thousands of Boston residents and visitors enjoyed this free international sporting event, sponsored by The Fallon Company, and gained firsthand knowledge about the thrilling sport of ocean racing. Event attendees were able to not only enjoy the action-packed sailing but also the waterfront’s world-class dining and leisure. Visit Website.
