Alicante Startpunkt für Volvo Ocean Race 2017
20.4.17, CH: Once again the famous Volvo Ocean Race will take its start in the southern Spanish city of Alicante this year. Several teams have so far already announced for the race, which will start in October and will take participants across cities such as Lisbon, Cape Town, Auckland, Cardiff and finally The Hague around the world. In addition to a breathtaking backdrop, with the harbor and the lively city in the background, the bid for Alicante is certainly not a coincidence, but an ideal starting point is given at an average of 24 degrees in October.
Not only the professional regatta teams from all over the world appreciate the pleasant location of the Spanish metropolis and its surroundings. Even private sailors and water sports enthusiasts draw year after year to the Costa Blanca to enjoy life on the water and enjoy the perfect mix of pulsating metropolis and picturesque small fishing villages in the region. The local cuisine with regional specialties in tapa bars and bodegas provides 1800 hours of sunshine a year. Regular regular flights from Germany to Alicante Airport make the Spanish coastal region reachable within a few hours.
A special highlight especially for fans of sailing is of course the Museo Volvo Ocean Race, dedicated entirely to the world-famous regatta. There, interested people will learn everything about the history of the competition and its most exciting moments. The region also has a lot to offer for other visitors to the Costa Blanca. This explains, among other things, why many Germans are creating a second home under the sun. Holiday apartments and holiday homes in Spain are available in various sizes and locations. Whether in lively cities like Altea or a bit more tranquil in places like Altea, you can live, enjoy and pursue your own interests to water and land. In addition, holiday homes in this region can be rented well during the season.
