Volvo round the world race delays decision on how to deal with threat of pirate attacks
The threat of pirate attacks on the competing boats in the next Volvo round the world race has been relegated to the back burner as the route for the next race starting from Alicante on 4 October next year is announced.
Eight boats, all built to the new 65-foot design, are expected to leave Alicante, Spain, for a new first stopover in Recife, Brazil before setting out on what is the longest leg, around South Africa and up to Abu Dhabi, a distance of nearly 10,000 miles.
