Fan Pier hosts the Volvo Ocean Race

The Volvo race has been called the “Everest of Sailing” races. One of the most grulling and dangerous boat races in the world, and now it is here in South Boston at the new Fan Pier.  Eight teams compete in a  trans-oceanic race traveling around the world to 11 ports starting in Alicante, Spain then ending in St.Petersberg, Russia.  Everyone needs to see the Volvo Ocean Race at the Fan Pier; it is an experience that proves once again, Boston is a world class metropolis.  Hopefully this will give more cultural value to Boston’s Seaport District, something it does not get the credit it deserves.  It is quite the spectacle seeing all the boats up close. You can also check out company demos and make sure to enjoy some cocktails at the Puma Bar.
