As we wrap up 2012, it provides an opportunity to wrap up what was one of the biggest challenges of 2012 for the CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand team in the latest edition of the Volvo Ocean Race.
This is the CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand story – a massive, never-say-die effort by sailors, shore crew, and support people to achieve a fighting second place.
The adventure started on November 5, 2011 when the Volvo Ocean Race sailed from Alicante, Spain.
Ahead lie 39,000 nautical miles of racing – driving hard through boat-breaking ocean storms and trying to keep the boat moving through sticky, super-heated days and nights in the calms of the dreaded Doldrums.
The crew battled on for nine months under intense pressure, never once losing sight of their ultimate goal.
