Volvo Race Newport 2018

The Volvo Ocean Race has left Newport, Rhode Island, for Cardiff, Wales, on the ninth leg of its trip around the world. The 13-day stopover in Newport was the only North American port of call in the race.

Using Fort Adams as a natural stopover for Race Village due to its abuntant size, it is easy to see how much of an impact the race had made over a 13 day period. Using the grounds proved more than enough space for spectators to view a global event that touches other cities around the globe.
