Your Chance to Be in Gothenburg for the big Volvo Ocean Race Festival in June

9th April 2018
There really is nothing else that matches this in world sailing – the crowded enthusiasm for the Volvo Ocean Race at the Gothenburg stopover There really is nothing else that matches this in world sailing – the crowded enthusiasm for the Volvo Ocean Race at the Gothenburg stopover

To celebrate Volvo Car Ireland’s sponsorship of the Volvo Round Ireland 2018, Volvo is offering some lucky person the very special opportunity to win a trip for two to witness the penultimate leg of the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018 in Gothenburg.

The Volvo Ocean Race is scheduled to stopover in Gothenburg in mid-June 2018. And of course, Gothenburg is the home of Volvo. This is where it all began for Sweden’s most iconic and loved brand – and Sweden doesn’t get much more Swedish than Gothenburg.

The prize includes two nights’ accommodation in a four star hotel for two people, dinner on both nights, and a tour of the Volvo Ocean Race village.

To enter, all you have to do is sign up for a Volvo test drive via the Round Ireland website here before the 4th of May. The winner will be announced on May 7th.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
