Next Year in 2012 Galway will host the finale of the Volvo Ocean Race and Oppie sailors get to be part of it !
The Volvo Ocean Race have invited a team of oppie sailors to take part in training and team racing event. This event will be fun fun fun !
The oppie sailors will get to meet the Volvo Ocean race sailors and tour the boats.
This will be held from the 3rd - 5th July in Galway and the top 32 trials sailors will be invited to attend. One of each gender must be on a team of four.
It is likely that the European and possibly international development team will be away during this time so more places may be available.
Further details coming soon.
For a flavour of the event please see the IODA website where similar team racing events have been held in Spain & South Africa.
