Since 1973, the Volvo Ocean Race has provided the ultimate test of a team across the world. The Volvo Ocean Race embodies the very same principles that Volvo Cars set out for themselves as an automotive maker—advanced design, safety, innovation, strength, endurance, and care for the environment. Inspired by the sense of community, strength and endurance embodied by Malahide Yacht Club, Volvo at Joe Duffy are delighted to sponsor this year’s Ulster Championship Event hosted by Malahide Yacht Club.
