Museum captures ‘Everest of Sailing’

Museum captures ‘Everest of Sailing’

A new visitor attraction has opened at the headquarters of the Volvo Ocean Race in Alicante, Spain.

Designed by Mather & Co, the new visitor attraction and museum aims to capture all aspects of the global race, which is described as the ‘Everest of Sailing’. Elements of the exhibition trace the history of the event as well as its environmental challenges and technological developments down the years. The design also has a strong focus on the human element of the race, with the creation of an immersive environment using high level projections that seek to recreate ‘life on deck’ conditions for the sailors as well as capture the emotion of their homecoming after nine months at sea.

The Volvo Ocean Race is one of the most demanding team sporting events in the world. The 2011-12 race started in Alicante last October and covers more than 39,000 nautical miles of the world’s most treacherous seas via Cape Town, Abu Dhabi, Sanya, and Auckland, around Cape Horn to Itajaí and Miami and then across the Atlantic to Lisbon and Lorient. The race is scheduled to end in Galway in July.
