Miami ready for arrival of Volvo Ocean Race

Miami is ready for arrival of Volvo Ocean Race - Business - "After sailing around the world since November, participants in the Volvo Ocean Race are doing what comes naturally to so many international jetsetters: Stopping in Miami for a break. The race, which first set sail in 1973, is making its sole North American stop in downtown Miami for the next two weeks. While the six 70-foot sailing yachts will likely not arrive until Wednesday because of weather delays, the Downtown Miami Race Village in Bicentennial Park will open to the public Sunday for a free, two-week festival. . . . Volvo Ocean Race CEO Knut Frostad said media from around the world, friends and family of sailors and sponsors will all be in town."
