Race course area

The starting procedure will start with a 10 minutes warning signal (a flag and a sound), followed by a Preparation signal indicating 5 minutes for the start and a 1 minute Signal before the start of the fleet. The race course will be a windward-leeward set in the direction of the wind of approximately 2.7 NM distance with 2 laps where boats will be leaving the marks on port side with a gate on leeward that gives more tactical options, being able to choose which side of the race course to follow in the second lap. The Exclusion area is outside the white marks for all spectator boats.  Media boats with a yellow official Volvo Ocean Race Flag are allowed into the course area but will keep clear of all racing yachts.
