Product Description

History Volvo 70

The Volvo 70 Ocean Race Yacht is a class of racing yachts designed for the Volvo Ocean Race. It was first used in the 2005–06 race and replaced the Volvo Ocean 60 Yachts, which were first raced in 1993. The Volvo Ocean 70 uses a Canting keel which is capable of canting transversely up to an angle of 40 degrees.

The Volvo Open 70 race rules are similar to those of a Formula One race team, as there is not a specific yacht design but a set of rules which competing yachts need to adhere to.

Volvo 70 Ocean Breeze

Ocean Breeze, formerly Telefonica Blue is a second-generation Volvo Ocean Race boat. She became 3rd in the 2008-2009 Ocean Race, sailing under the Spanish flag with Dutch Skipper Bouwe Bekking. After the race, the boat was sold to an Irish/Chinese Team. “Sanya Lan” became 6th in the 2011-2012 VOR Race with Skipper Mike Sanderson. The boat has undergone a total refit in 2016 and 2018.

Ocean Breeze is under new ownership since 2020.

Crew

The maximum crew for offshore racing is 20 and for inshore racing 25. The boat comes with a professional skipper, and up to 2 or 3 crew members depending on your needs.

The aim is to deliver a great experience to everybody onboard, first-time sailors or more experienced sailors and not too win in spite of everything. Johannes is happy to let you do anything on board and he is there to assist you. You will be an active team member and not just a passenger.

Training

When day racing there will be two days of training. The first day consists of familiarisation with the boat and during the second day, you will go trough sailing manoeuvres and procedures.

For a longer offshore race ideally, there are 4 days of training and preparation. On day 1 there is a briefing for half a day. On the second day, you will go through manoeuvres and procedures. On day 3 there will we some serious training and the day before the race there will be no sailing but the boat will be prepared for the race.

Food

While racing we have prepared or freeze-dried food on board so we are suited for all conditions and can focus on performance.

Watch System

During a longer offshore race, there will be a watch system of two watches consisting of 4 hours during the day and 3 hours during the night.

Crew

The maximum crew for offshore sailing is 20 and for inshore sailing 25. The boat comes with a professional skipper, and up to 2 or 3 crew members depending on your needs. You will be an active crew member and not just a passenger.

Food

We usually cook onboard unless you want to have the Ocean Race experience with freeze-dried food.

Watch System

During a longer distance voyage, there will be two watches of 2×6 hours during the day and 3×4 hours during the night. In demanding conditions we switch to a watch system of 3×4 during the day and 3×4 during the night. But we try to avoid demanding conditions and we will use the engine to escape from wind shadows around island capes for example.

Johannes is a great motivator for sailors and teams and is leading them safely across oceans and race courses.  Johannes is also a promotor of women in sailing. In the first Volvo Legend Race in 2011, he raced on Volvo 60 Cuba Libre with an all-female team consisting of former Volvo Ocean Race competitors.

In 1990 he initiated the first Austrian Whitbread Challenge project and run that for 8 years as technical director. He competed as skipper in the Hongkong Challenge Round the World Race (first participation of an Austrian team at a round-the-world race). From 2006 Johannes owned and skippered several Volvo 60’s and 70’s, starting with VO60 ASSA ABLOY (2005-2008), additionally running and racing VO60 Tokio2 (2007-2010), VO60 Cuba Libre (ex Heineken) (2010-2015), and VO70 Green Dragon from 2015. From 2018 on he is additionally running and racing Volvo 70 E1 ex Ericsson and from 2019 Volvo 70 Monster Project, ex Kosatka.

Results

The aim is to deliver a great experience to everybody onboard, first-time sailors or more experienced sailors and not to win in spite of everything.
