Team Vestas Wind will embark on the round-the-world race in October, visiting 11 ports and covering almost 39,000 nautical miles.
The racing yacht will visit some of the world’s key wind markets on its voyage, including Brazil, China, the US and South Africa.
Morten Albæk, Vestas’ chief marketing officer, said: “Volvo Ocean Race is the world’s preeminent boat race, and as in our business, success hinges on utilising the wind most effectively.”
The Team Vestas boat will be the first Danish racer to enter the contest.
