sAILING EDITION SUNGLASSES

We launched the new Volvo Ocean Race "Sailing Edition" sunglasses made with 100% recycled fishing nets and co-developed with professional sailors from the Volvo Ocean Race.

about the race

The Volvo Ocean Race is often described as the longest and toughest professional sporting event in the world, sailing’s most demanding team challenge and one of the sport’s Big Three events, alongside the Olympics and America’s Cup.

Since 1973, the Volvo Ocean Race has provided the ultimate test of a team and human adventure like no other. Over four decades it has kept an almost mythical hold over some of the greatest ever sailors – and the 2017-18 edition will take the teams 45,000 nautical miles around the world, across four oceans, touching six continents and 12 landmark Host Cities.
It represents an ideal platform to make an impact about a global issue.

LEG 2: LISBON - CAPETOWN
