Ways to follow the VolvoOceanRace

The Starting date for the VolvoOceanRace 2011-2012 is nearing. It will all start with the In-Port Race in Alicante on 29th October at 12:00 UTC.

VOR is doing a lot on promotion, communication and provision of information this Race.

This is a summary of all methods to be used for the information before and during the VOR.

There will be on-line 3D live trackers for the In-Port and 2D trackers for the legs.
VOR is active on Facebook and Twitter and puts some interesting video's on Youtube.

A blog with daily news is maintained as well reporting on the  progress of the Boats, the special news and some insight in the weather on route.

Documentaries will be on TV via several stations and some radio reports as well.

And of course there is the VolvoOceanRaceGame, where you can sail your own Boat alongside the 6 real Boats and try to beat them. This year also App's for iPhone and Android mobiles will become available.
