As with the Volvo 2001-02 & 2005-06 Lisa Marie Wood (Boatshed Operations Manger) has been seconded to be a Volvo Race Officer for the third time.

To celebrate the collaboration between VOR and Boatshed we have the official hardback copy of 'Life at the Extreme' by Rob Mundle, for one lucky Boatshed customer to win and we hope to have it signed by some of the Skippers and Team at the Race Start in Alicante!

Boatshed has recently listed 'Hugo Boss II' one of the earlier 'Volvo 60's’ and for your chance to win the signed book of the last Volvo Race 2005 - 2006, simply log on to, register (if not a valued customer already) and view the photographs of the current Volvo 60 that we have for sale. This is open to old and new customers alike.

A lucky customer will be picked at random to win the prize!
The winner will be drawn the day that the fleet arrives in Cape Town.
Alicante to Cape Town is approximately 6,500 nm, the average speed of the fleet is expected to be 12kts and ETA 3rd November 2008.

Early Christmas present maybe!
