At last, the moment we have waited for is here. The boats competing in the Volvo Ocean Race are all lined up in Alicante, Spain, signaling that the first leg is ready to set sail.

Their journey will span every ocean, five continents and nine months, and will be the ultimate test of sailing prowess and human endurance. Competitors will risk their very lives on the world’s most turbulent seas. After months of preparation, they are ready.

IWC is proud to be a presenting sponsor and the Official Timekeeper of the Volvo Ocean Race. The qualities on display in the competition reflect the principles that guide our company. At IWC, we advance the limits of artistry and craftsmanship; in the Volvo Ocean Race, competitors push the limits of human achievement.

IWC will provide live updates from each port reached by the sailing teams. Follow these on facebook.com/iwcwatches, and in one week, we will launch our live Race Tracker on IWC.com. Stay tuned for more.
