Puma Shoes Company interested in next Volvo race

Sailing from the seventeenth century the Netherlands. In 1622, the Anglo-Dutch competition between the two countries created a precedent for yachting. Today, the oldest sports still flourish, and commercial operation is like a needle into the arm of its body.

Was first established in 1973, Volvo Global Challenge race called White Brad Central Air Challenge. It's tough sailing like a marathon race, participants have to accept the technology and the double test of endurance, so far, it has become the world's highest World Cup level, and the "Mount Everest of sailing".

Organisers have said they hope to increase the number of participants to at least a dozen for the next edition.

Most of the teams that participated in the 2008-09 race, including Spain's Telefonica, Sweden's Ericsson and Puma Shoes Company of the United States, intend to participate in 2011-12, Frostad said.

There will be only seven or eight stages for the 2011-12 event, which will again leave from the Spanish port of Alicante, where the Volvo Ocean Race has established its headquarters, and will last a maximum of eight months.
