The Volvo Ocean Race returns to Galway
Who would have thought it – it has just been confirmed this afternoon that Galway will be the final port in the 2011/2012 Volvo Ocean Race. http://www.volvooceanrace.com/news/article/2010/MARCH/GALWAY-ANNOUNCEMENT-100310/
Fantastic news for Galway, and for Ireland as a whole.
I’m sure that 2012 will be just as amazing, possibly even better. Granted, the two weeks of glorious sunshine we had will be hard to beat, but we have 2 full years to prepare the city, and the harbour – and I think the Galwegians showed their spirit and enthusiasm last time, so it should be fantastic.
