The Volvo Ocean Race: Life at the Extreme

Presented by Dawn Riley, Executive Director of Oakcliff Sailing Center 

Firmly established on the world stage as one of sport’s toughest events, the Volvo Ocean Race attracts sailing’s most talented high achievers. The bar is set high, with sailing world champions, Olympic medalists and America’s Cup veterans all drawn to compete in their sport’s ultimate challenge. Conditions on the world’s oceans continue to push boats and crews to their limits and beyond. The constant evolution in communications technology has allowed race fans to get closer to the action every race and follow the progress of their heroes around the planet. Dawn Riley, who took the helm of Heineken in the 1993-94 Whitbread Round-the-World Race and wrote about her experiences in Taking the Helm, will give us an accounting of this year’s Volvo Ocean Race, including her take on Alivmedica, and the Oakcliff connection to Alvimedica’s co-founders, Charlie Enright and Mark Towill.  Dawn’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
