Riding the storm | Volvo Ocean Race

When others run from storms, our sailors chase them! Here's a view from the sky – some of the most epic waves in Volvo Ocean Race history.

Racing the Flying Phantom Hydrofoil Catamaran

The Flying Phantom catamaran is quite arguably the future of sailing. It's a two-person vessel powered by the wind and a unique hydrofoil design. The hydrofoil lifts the vessel above water as it cuts through heavy ocean conditions, requiring much less energy to propel the craft at speeds up to 30 knots. Take an inside look at the science behind the catamaran, and how it's game-changing design has progressed the sport to a whole new level.
