The Volvo Ocean Race returns to Galway

Yesssssssssss!!

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.

Last year’s stopover was an amazing event, and I loved every second of it.

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.
