This report presents a detailed review of the global reach and multimedia impact of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 – the closest and most successful edition in the event’s near 40-year history.

Hundreds of our stakeholders took advantage of this chance to experience the event first-hand in our Stopovers with the In-Ports, Pro-Ams and Practice Races in 2011-12, as well as conferences, business seminars and customer activities.

It is gratifying to be able to report record audiences across all media, helped by more and more dedicated news coverage from major international publications, broadcasters and news agencies over almost nine months of competition.

The report looks too at how we brought compelling content direct from boats thousands of miles away to our growing fan base via communications technology and the tireless work of our Media Crew Members. The MCMs are the embedded reporters who provide the eyes and ears for the outside world, sending stunning HD video, stills, audio and text back from the boats, and our commitment to this unique programme will only be strengthened going forward.

As we forge ahead in our preparation for the next race in 201415, taking advantage of rapidly developing technologies to tell our story in new ways and reach new audiences, our focus will remain on achieving maximum value for teams and stakeholders. It is a key reason why this race will continue to be a truly global event. In 2011-12 we made our second visit to China, with another highly successful Stopover, and broke new ground in the Middle East with a fantastic stop in Abu Dhabi. The Volvo Ocean Race has changed a great deal in terms of technology and the professionalism of the teams since its inception in 1973 as the Whitbread Round the World Race. But our place as sport’s ultimate test for man against nature, one of the last great human challenges and one of sailing’s Big Three global events, remains unaltered. Groupama, winners in 2011-12, drew on age-old qualities of courage, seamanship and stamina to seal their victory and earn the right to hold aloft one of the hardest-won trophies in sport.

For the next edition in 2014-15, we have introduced a new onedesign class of boat which is being built with new audiences in mind, boasting greater communication capabilities while retaining its predecessor’s DNA as a high-performance racing craft. We want to build an even more competitive, larger fleet for the next race and we are convinced that the new boat is the way to achieve this with greater cost efficiency for teams from design to roll-out and on to the race itself. With Volvo’s continuous strong support, we aim to keep adding improved return on investment for all our stakeholders and ports. The race has never been in better shape.

As well as record media stats, economic impact studies and footfall figures, this report highlights how teams and other key partners and sponsors have drawn maximum value from their investment.

Each wave-shaped ring on the Volvo Ocean Race trophy represents a winner of one edition. The trophy, made of aluminium and silver plate, is the only prize for victory in this sporting and human epic.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Introduction

Methodology

The Volvo Ocean Race

TV:

The Volvo Ocean Race is the longest and toughest event in professional sport – a race run on a scale like no other and a story with the power to engage millions of fans worldwide. Across four oceans and five continents, the six teams that completed the 2011-12 race around the world experienced scorching days and freezing nights in impossibly cramped conditions on board. Over 39,270 nautical miles and more than eight months of competition, the sailors took on a challenge of breathtaking scope, hitting maximum speeds of 42 knots (77.8 kph) and being faced with waves as high as 16 metres. In a world which increasingly takes risk out of daily life, the Volvo Ocean Race is one of the last pursuits in sport which tests competitors to the core. We brought fans closer to the hyper-reality of the race through live HD video and multimedia reports beamed from the boats using cutting edge satellite technology and onboard media equipment and services.

Back on land, millions of people flocked to the race villages at our 10 ports to experience a different side of the race – getting a closeup view of the boats and sailors while enjoying the attractions of our Race Village Experience. The latest edition of an event that began life as the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1973 hit a wider cross-media audience than ever before, underlining its status as one of the Big Three competitions in world sailing, along with the America’s Cup and the Olympics. Looking ahead, a new high-calibre boat will be on the start line in the next race in 2014-15, designed and built from scratch with all the demands of 21st century sporting events in mind. It will help the race build on its proven track record over 11 editions, 39 years and countless miles of real human drama told through relentless ocean racing.

IFM/SMS monitored selected channels in 15 countries during the period October 10, 2011-July 20, 2012, except in the case of Spain, the race’s home country, where the monitoring period began on September 26, 2011. The monitored countries were: Brazil, China, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States. News, Dedicated Programmes & Sports Magazines were monitored for coverage. Volvo Ocean Race provided further clips from the monitored & nonmonitored markets. No extrapolation was used to estimate additional broadcasts beyond these. Audiences are based on audited data where possible or estimated audiences. Estimates are calculated based on channel universe, subscriptions or population and channel reach data. - TV Media Value = CPT x Audience x Duration of Clip, where CPT is the 30-second channel advertising rate. An AB Adult weighting factor has been applied to the CPT for some specific coverage (15%), as research shows that this group is dominant within race and sailing fans. - TV Brand Exposure Value = CPT x Audience x Brand Time on Screen, where the brand time on screen means a legible brand at least 75% visible on screen for at least 2 seconds.

Route 2011-12

Print: Monitoring carried out by IFM/SMS in selected publications in the 15 countries as above. Volvo Ocean Race provided further cuttings from the monitored markets and other countries. No extrapolation was used to estimate additional articles. Print Media Value = CPT x Readership x Size of the Article, where CPT is the publication advertising cost. Readership is based on audited data or is estimated. Estimates are based

on circulation rates. The size of the article is defined as a percentage of the page within the publication. Print Brand Exposure Value = CPT x Readership x Brand Visibility in the article, including brand verbal mentions and brand visibility in images within the article. A weighting factor is applied to each brand appearance, depending on the prominence of the visibility.

Online: Coverage tracked by IFM/SMS across 47 key websites in the 15 core markets as above. In addition, Meltwater News supplied a report showing total global articles containing references to Volvo Ocean Race and sponsors. Collected material used as the basis to estimate exposure and visual impact across the remaining Rest of World websites (Meltwater News). Values then calculated based on the number of visitors to each site on any given day. YouTube Media Value: Using Google analytics sent

by Volvo Ocean Race, IFM SMS was able to generate a media value for the YouTube channel of the Volvo Ocean Race. The data tracked three weeks of activity on the channel including duration of clips, total views & estimated time watched. The calculation was applied to this sample and extrapolated to reflect the total race.

Livestream media value: Using programme durations and video views sent by Volvo Ocean Race, IFM/SMS was able to generate a media value for the Livestream site of the Volvo Ocean Race, which broadcast live footage of the ProAm Races, In-Port Races and Leg Starts, plus live video calls from the boats and feeds of footage from each Media Crew Member. Users also had the capacity to view videos on demand after live broadcasts.

Communications Strategy

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Volvo Ocean Race Media Centre

PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG meet the press on arrival in port

Targeted content, tailor-made Our objective for the 2011-12 edition was to further broaden the appeal of a race already established as one of sailing’s three most important global events, taking the action to new audiences while keeping hardcore fans glued to screens on every major platform.

Franck Cammas, Skipper, Groupama sailing team

Central to our strategy was the effective use of global distributors of content – organisations with the ability to do justice to this story of exhilaration, heroism and speed. Key actions were to:

Jon Bramley Director of Communications Volvo Ocean Race

»»

Introduce live television coverage of the In-Port Races and Leg Starts to win new converts to the Volvo Ocean Race and the sport of sailing, while giving existing fans their best ever experience of the race.

»»

Provide content across video, still pictures, audio and text that would be as easy as possible to use for hard-pressed news desks, fitting neatly within their schedules.

»»

Work with leading global agencies such as Reuters, Associated Press, Agence FrancePresse and Getty Images to distribute this content direct to the largest media platforms in the world.

»»

Appoint a team of expert representatives in each of our key target countries to offer tailored content in their own languages and territories – Spain, France, Italy, the United States, Brazil, China, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden.

»»

Keep core fans of the race constantly up to date with multimedia content and data on our inhouse platforms including volvooceanrace.com and Facebook.

We were fortunate that the teams delivered the closest race in the history of an event that has been creating heroes since 1973. Thanks to the work of the onboard Media Crew Members we were able to capture that drama with multimedia material of higher quality than ever, and deliver it for publication in high-value outlets worldwide.

Race Control, Volvo Ocean Race HQ, Alicante, Spain

The Race Control room at Volvo Ocean Race headquarters in Alicante is the nerve-centre of the whole operation. From this ‘mission control’, the boats are tracked via the Inmarsat satellite network while at sea, with safety the prime concern for the Duty Officers who man the station 24/7. The room has its own independent power supply and can even operate without internet using the Inmarsat Satellite network should there be a breakdown in infrastructure locally. Weather information: Race control prepares and transmits a daily weather package for the boats with assistance from on-shore weather specialists. Race Control has the latest updated weather models for quick assessments when needed in any critical event.

MCM controller station: A member of the communications team sees all the content coming through from the boats and makes a quick editorial decision on the incoming footage. It is a vital first stage in the process of producing content for our own platforms and delivering it to stakeholders and external media. Control desk: In case of a situation that requires intervention from Race Management this desk can access all relevant information such as local charts, weather systems, boat data, etc. When key race personnel are travelling they can also access the Race Control remotely and view the same information live.

12

3D Race Tracker: Displaying the accurate boat positions and relevant weather and sea current data, updated every 60 seconds. Time zones: The boats race through all the time zones. However for all communication with race control UTC is used as the basis. The middle figure indicates the countdown to the next In-Port Race or Leg Start. Multimedia content: The latest video and still pictures received from the boats. Live content: Race Control facilitates live TV interviews and connects the boats to broadcasters across the world. Duty Officers: The duty officers man Race Control 24/7 in eighthour shifts. They monitor the fleet constantly and can manually poll data in case of a systems failure. Boat instruments: These B&G instrument displays have access to telemetry numbers from the boats and automatically display boatspeed and windspeed from the whole fleet. Telemetry: Race control can access more than 20 different variables from black boxes in the boats, including boat speed, heel angle, temperature, G-force, wind speed, wind direction and wave height. Telemetry data is updated every 10 seconds and distributed to race trackers, websites and apps.

“The MCMs on the boats were terrific – what they delivered for highlights, for the web, for everyone and on live shows as well. A great rapport developed between the director and MCMs during live shows and it was evident with the performances of the crews during the coverage, pre-race and post-race. The overall structure of the Volvo programming and MCMs was a big step forward.”

The total number of online news reports reached during the 2008-09 race had already been overtaken after the Auckland Stopover (March 19, 2012).

France

On average, there were 207 online news stories per day on sites around the world, more than double the 2008-09 race.

Spain

Online news articles on the race were used in more than 100 different countries across five continents. The arrival of Groupama to Galway on July 3 generated almost 1,000 online news stories from 46 different countries. Leg 5 and Leg 1 attracted the highest number of online articles (8,899 and 8,826 respectively). Prestigious sources like The New York Times, l´Equipe in France, The Guardian in the UK and Spain’s Marca, featured the Race on average at least once a week each on their websites. In France, big titles Le Figaro and Ouest France, posted, on average, at least one story each per day of the race.

The Volvo Ocean Race boasts such a diverse cast of characters, from the skippers, sailors and shore crew to the volunteers, staff and millions of race village visitors, that every edition produces stories you would never expect.

Martin Kirketerp, a hard-working member of the Sanya shore crew, is about as unassuming a character as you can get. While he was known to a handful of race insiders, very few people had any idea that the Dane was a reigning Olympic champion.

The gold medallist from the 2008 Games in Beijing was persuaded out of anonymity as the race arrived at the Chinese Stopover in Sanya. His decision to give up the chance of another Olympic gold and work his way up from the bottom in the Volvo Ocean Race struck a chord with sports fans worldwide. The two biggest global news agencies Reuters and AP ran extensive features on Kirketerp, who has one prosthetic eye after overcoming cancer as a child, while CCTV in China gave him the status of a returning hero. The story was picked up around the world and had a happy ending as he finally got his chance to sail on board Sanya for several legs and in-port races towards the end.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Media Reach: Pictures

Official race photographers and onboard Media Crew Members shot and processed around 50,000 images over the course of the race, with editors selecting the best of them to send to media around the world. The quality of those images is world class and on many occasions they tell the story by themselves and lead to coverage on some of the highest profile websites in the world – while newspapers and magazines have a natural choice for a front page, even if the news itself is not so prominent. Pictures are also the driving force behind the race’s Facebook expansion. The photo galleries created by our editors from the work of the race photographers and the MCMs on board proved the most popular elements posted while the 2011-12 race was on, generating thousands of likes, shares and comments every time.

Sailing’s Triple Crown

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Volvo Ocean Race in the Sailing World

Volvo Ocean Race is the largest sailing property on Facebook by a big margin, with more than 200,000 fans by the end of the race

The Volvo Ocean Race is established as one of the Big Three events in global sailing and is out on its own in terms of social media engagement and internet presence.

Including all the team Facebook pages, the total number of fans by the end of the race stood at 379,559 and the number continues to grow

The America’s Cup is sport’s oldest active trophy and established as sailing’s leading in-shore event alongside the Olympics, which for a fortnight every four years brings the brightest media spotlight to the sport.

The only sailing site that got close to volvooceanrace.com in page views over the course of the race was the official Volvo Ocean Race Game site

In offshore sailing, nothing gets close to the Volvo Ocean Race for global reach and status. With a history dating back to 1973, the Volvo Ocean Race occupies a place on the calendar of major sporting events and is a key part of sailing’s Triple Crown.

In terms of engagement, fans of the Volvo Ocean Race are much more active than those of any other sailing event, including the America’s Cup

Almost five million visits produced stays of between 10 and 30 minutes thanks in part to the live coverage.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Itajaí was one of the race’s most popular host ports with over a quarter of a million visitors to the Race Village. The fleet left Lisbon on what would prove to be the decisive stage as Telefónica fought desperately to regain their lead from Groupama. The Spanish team would suffer three broken rudders as the drama unfolded before an avid Facebook audience.

Growth and engagement The growth in popularity of the official Volvo Ocean Race Facebook page between the 2008-09 and 2011-12 editions demonstrated just how important the platform has become in the last three years. The chart demonstrates how key moments in the race sparked big increases both in terms of numbers of likes and in fan engagement.

Facebook fans: It took one year to grow the base from 40k fans to 100k, then only 105 days to get to 200k After three successive leg wins for Telefónica, Groupama finally broke the Spanish team’s lock on the race with victory in Auckland. By March 9 the Facebook page had its 100,000th fan as the race became a major talking point in one of its traditional heartlands.

The first few hours of the race were among the most dramatic in the history of the event. A broken mast for Abu Dhabi was followed almost immediately by news that Sanya had collided with an Unidentified Floating Object, resulting in a massive hole in her bow section. Both were out of Leg 1 and struggling to get back in the race at all.

Facebook: Page engagement

A resurgent PUMA team closed in on a second successive victory that was greeted by ecstatic home fans in Miami. The number of Facebook fans hit 150,000 that day.

Live updating coverage of the short final leg had Facebook fans hooked as Groupama sealed overall victory at the first attempt.

The battering received by the teams in the Mediterranean on Leg 1 made for brutal conditions for the sailors, while CAMPER’s Chuny Bermúdez was knocked from his feet in memorable footage.

Five of the six boats were forced to stop on Leg 5 and only three made it to the finish line, while CAMPER and Abu Dhabi were forced into desperate mid-ocean repairs.

Leg 8 saw Telefónica battle to regain the lead before seeing their hopes dashed by three rudder breakages in quick succession. Along the way, they also lost out to CAMPER in a ferocious battle for the IWC Speed Record Challenge.

It all starts on board Telefónica, as the race leaders are battered by a series of enormous waves on their way to Cape Horn on Leg 5. Across the fleet there are crashes, storms and breakages and the latest monster hit in 40 knots of wind sends skipper Iker Martínez up on deck to check if everyone is still on board.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Social and Multi Media


Tracking the fleet

»»

All the content produced by the Media Crew Members and sent back to HQ was made available in raw format via the race’s Livestream multimedia platform.

»»

The Volvo Ocean Race boats are tracked continuously by satellite to provide vital real time information to race management at a state-of-the-art Race Control room at HQ in Alicante.

»»

Each team had a dedicated channel within Livestream, with tens of thousands of fans using the service to consume HD video, stills, audio files and text.

»»

»»

As the race reached its conclusion more and more video calls were programmed with the boats and made available to watch live and on demand on Livestream.

Sophisticated software translates the information into graphical form so fans can also follow the boats wherever they are in the world via the web and on Apps, or on embedded trackers on external sites.

»»

»»

The Livestream platform also hosted live HD streaming of Leg Starts and In-Port Races alongside a forum for fans to boost engagement.

From the start of the race, the Géovoile 2D Tracker was able to use data to display position updates every 60 seconds at Leg Starts and on approach to finish lines (reduced to every three hours during racing).

»»

By the time the boats reached the shorter European legs, audience demand was such that live tracking was switched on throughout, accompanied by a Live Blog powered by Scribble to allow fans to discuss the race.

»»

Predicted positions were also introduced, using routing software algorithms to project possible routes and prompt debate.

»»

For the final third of the Race, the VirtualEye 3D Tracker (using the Unity plug-in) provided high-end tracking of the boats.

Race Control located at HQ, Alicante, Spain

More than 16 million visits (16,224,094) and 244 million page views (244,458,639) to the Tracker during the race The Tracker had 67.3% more total visits and more than seven times more page views than in the last race

6.7 million video views recorded on the Livestream channel during the race

Leg 8 attracted the highest number of visits per day (131,112) and also the highest number of page views per day (3,928,305)

Figures refer to the direct economic impact in the host countries. Where the country-wide impact was not available, PwC presented the impact in the host local region. In principle, the country-wide impact can be larger or smaller than the regional impact, since the impact in the rest of the country (outside the host region) can be either positive or negative. (2) For those studies providing results in other currencies than the Euro, PwC converted the results to Euros using the average annual exchange rate published by the European Central Bank for the year when the event took place. (3) Direct impact in the local region, as the impact in the whole country was not estimated. Average direct impact per tie. (1)

The Volvo Ocean Race Experience


Sponsorship

All sponsors benefit from the power of a sports and entertainment platform that connects customers and consumers on a global scale and over a prolonged activation period. »»

Source: IEG Valuation Statement for Volvo Ocean Race September 2012

93/100

IEG rated the intangible aspects of a commercial partnership with the Volvo Ocean Race, based on 30 years of tracking the sponsorship industry and using their intelligence database which reviews hundreds of sponsorship contracts every year. The scores depended upon how the race performed against standard IEG criteria and compared to similar properties within the sector.

Benefits to which a clear monetary value can be assigned include: »»

The Volvo Ocean Race has a long tradition of working with commercial partners, many of whom have supported the race for over a decade, contributing products, services and fees to deliver the event and play vital roles in its growth.

Prestige of Property

Intangible benefits IEG states that when a company conducts a sponsorship, it should primarily be buying access to a property’s intangibles: the qualitative benefits that a sponsorship delivers, such as borrowed imagery and audience loyalty. The intangible benefits of the Volvo Ocean Race include: »»

Category exclusivity

»»

Use of Volvo Ocean Race imagery/content & logos

»»

Audience loyalty

»»

Networking opportunities

»»

Sponsor ability to activate

IEG concluded that in the case of the Volvo Ocean Race, approximately 70% of the sponsorship value is generated by intangible sponsorship benefits, while 30% is generated from the tangible benefits. IEG research demonstrates that with truly global properties such as the Olympics, FIFA and F1, sponsors are primarily paying for global reach, promotional rights and activation opportunities. These are all intangibles. 67

Sponsors such as DHL, Groupama and Telefónica inspired employees with updates from the race, displays at head office and a branded version of the official game restricted to employees. DHL’s Backstage Facebook page has an incredible 144,000 ‘likes’.

»»

Corporate citizenship: The race is also ideally suited to execute Corporate Social Responsibility programmes, with hundreds of school children participating in educational programmes, Try Sailing initiatives and environmental schemes.

Team Sponsorship Impact

Naming names The Volvo Ocean Race occupies an exceptional space in the sporting world as a major property that is universally referred to with a brand name in its title, while offering similar opportunities for sponsors backing individual teams. The fact that the sailors on board are not generally household names across the world can actually help sponsors too. There is little option for media covering the race but to refer to the teams by their main sponsor names. News reports will regularly refer to several brand names whereas in other sports, news organisations work hard to avoid making such references. With the Volvo Ocean Race, such avoidance is not realistically possible.

Team TV Value = CPT x Audience x Team Time on Screen. It shows the total value of the team coverage on TV. Team Print Value = CPT x Readership x Team Visibility on the Article. It shows the total potential value of the team coverage in print. Team Online Value: Coverage tracked by IFM/SMS across 47 key websites in the 15 core markets as on page 9. In addition, Meltwater News supplied a report showing total global articles containing references to Volvo Ocean Race and sponsors. Collected material used as the basis to estimate exposure and visual impact across the remaining rest of world websites (Meltwater News). Values then calculated based on the number of visitors to each site on any given day. No discount factors have been applied in relation to media values (where utilised). Team Online Value does not include any of the Volvo Ocean Race’s own online properties.

78

Intangible value. In the sponsorship valuation an intangible value was applied, reflecting the qualitative assessment of the added value achieved through the association with the property. This intangible value was based upon specific criteria supported by factored market research. The criteria measured were Timing & Seasonality, Awareness of the Property, Image Values, Fan Base, Sponsor Status, Exclusivity, Brand Association & Recall, Relevance and Consideration to Purchase. The value is arrived at by calculating a percentage of 70% of the Total Media Value (a percentage which is reached as a result of the valuation of all the factors, qualitative research and comparison with other sports properties).

hen some of the world’s most hardened professional yachtsmen set out with their high-tech craf t to sail almost 40,000 nautical miles around the world; when they defy howling storms and monster waves; when they risk collision with icebergs, broken rudders and having their sails torn to shreds; when they suffer temperature fl uctuations from –5 to +40 degrees Celsius without a word of complaint; when they don’t mind living off freeze-dried food for nine months and suffering from constant sleep deprivation, yet at the end fall deliriously into each other’s arms, it can only be about one thing: the legendary Volvo Ocean Race. Welcome to the world’s toughest sailing competition. Not without reason is it regarded as the Mount Everest of sailing.

For more than nine months, the Volvo Ocean Race ran a highprofile campaign entitled Keep the Oceans Clean! In association with the artists collective Skeleton Sea, the campaign was designed to inspire people of all ages, but particularly children, to take action against the estimated 100 million tonnes of plastics and other materials polluting our oceans. Newspapers and broadcasters around the world featured the Beach Cleans and workshops, helping to put environment and sustainability at the heart of a race that has a powerful interest in caring for the oceans. »»

A total of 140,000 people visited the Keep the Oceans Clean dome at race Stopovers to learn about the plight of our oceans via a multimedia exhibition and film.

»»

Thousands more visitors to the Race Villages joined race staff, sailors and shore crew members in community Beach Cleans and sculpture workshops in our race Stopovers in Spain, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, China, New Zealand, Brazil, the United States, Portugal, France and Ireland.

Volvo Ocean Race Academy »»

The Volvo Ocean Race Academy aimed to leave a lasting legacy of youth sailing around the world. This new initiative inspired, coached and entertained thousands of local youngsters at each of the host ports. Not only that, over 80 umpires also had the opportunity to gain valuable training too.

»»

The Team Racing Clinic was aimed at local youth sailors who already knew how to sail, and wanted to improve their teamracing skills through learning new techniques and tactics which were taught and practised over the three-day period.

»»

The Academy culminated in each Stopover with teams racing Optimist dinghies under the colours of the Volvo Ocean Race teams over short courses of 6-8 minutes held in the heart of the Race Villages, followed by a prize-giving ceremony. The youth sailors also had the opportunity to meet the Volvo Ocean Race sailors and shore teams, stepping on board the Volvo Open 70 yachts and exploring the teams’ shore bases in a money-can’t-buy experience.

Try Sailing »»

The Try Sailing initiative engaged the non-sailing community, both young and old, with the sport.

»»

Participants went sailing with their friends, family or classmates and with an experienced and qualified local coach so that newly enthusiastic sailors could continue their education on the water and take part in local sailing events long after the Volvo Ocean Race had left port.

»»

The Volvo Ocean Race had three ‘Ludic’ dinghies in each Stopover. The boats were 5.3m long and could carry eight children with one adult coach.

In years to come there could be top crews racing around the world who were first inspired by a hands-on experience in one of the Volvo Ocean Race Villages.

Mediaand Branding Volvo Crew the Member Race For Volvo the race provides a unique platform to build the brand, build relationships and sell more products. This is done through an active customer programme at the stopovers along the route, where thousands of customers, media and dealers taste the race in tailor-made programmes. For Volvo, the association helps to highlight both the more emotional and the more capable aspects of the brand and product, such as design and technology built around people’s needs.

Delivery The Volvo companies invite customers, media and dealers to the Stopovers to experience the Race Villages and get on the water for a first-hand experience of what the Volvo Ocean Race truly means. On site, the Volvo Pavilion provides an attractive base to educate invitees about the race and company involvement – with seminars covering topics such as transport solutions, energy efficiency, logistics and safety – while many guests are also given the chance to get out and visit Volvo plants in countries where Volvo has industrial operations. Activation cuts across a wide range of activities, including product launches, marketing and branding, customer service and employee involvement. As a tangible example, Volvo produces limited editions of vehicles and for the Volvo Ocean Race car edition the company runs a fully integrated Command the Extreme marketing campaign in TV, print, digital and social media. Employees follow the Race online, via office displays and as players in the Volvo Ocean Race Game, while the visitors to the Race Villages join customers and dealers in getting experience of Volvo products via displays, demonstrations and test-drives. There were demo and test drive sites in Alicante, Auckland, Lorient and Galway, while Volvo Cars used the European stopovers to launch the new V40 to public, media and dealers. Volvo Construction Equipment held several press events during the race and launched a new wheel loader and excavator in Auckland and a Pipelayer in Lorient. To encourage greater online engagement, the Volvo Cars On-land Challenge put racing driver Robert Dahlgren and former Volvo Ocean Race sailor Gurra Kranz in a Volvo XC60 car to see if they could beat the Volvo Open 70 boats on the short final leg between Lorient in France and the finish line in Galway, Ireland. The car won. To further engage machine operators, Volvo Construction Equipment held the competition Operators Club European Final in conjunction with the Alicante Stopover.

Results The main achievement for Volvo was to involve as many customers and dealers as possible with a high quality programme that included test drives, seminars and products, giving clients a perfect opportunity to discuss future needs. On top of that, journalists took part in programmes and pre-test drives. Volvo Cars estimate to have sold a record 15,000 Volvo Ocean Race edition cars and Volvo Group more than 800 special edition Volvo Ocean Race trucks and almost 1,300 special edition Excavators. Both companies reached an all-time high for brand and product exposure in media with a record number of guests.

Volvo Pavilion, Alicante


Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) had three main objectives heading into its inaugural Volvo Ocean Race campaign – to showcase the emirate as a winter watersport tourism destination, to demonstrate local sailing potential through Emirati Crew Member inclusion and to leave a tangible sailing legacy that would both reignite the emirate’s deep-rooted maritime heritage and take Abu Dhabi into the global yachting spotlight. The campaign was a success on all levels

Delivery Key to Abu Dhabi’s participation was its all-round status as host port, team sponsor and race partner – three roles to match the three main event goals and all first-of-their-kind agreements for an Arabian destination in the Volvo Ocean Race. The inclusion of Abu Dhabi as a host port for 2011-12 opened a new chapter in the Middle East’s maritime history – representing the only time the region achieved relevance within the ‘Everest of Sailing’. Created to showcase everything the emirate has to offer, from Abu Dhabi’s deep-rooted maritime and cultural heritage to the very best in modern entertainment, state-of-the-art facilities, family attractions and concerts, the free-to-attend ‘Destination Village’ would welcome more than 100,000 fans over the eventful fortnight, which started with British band Coldplay ringing in the New Year. A hit with fans from across the world, 89 percent of visitors to the Race Village said they would recommend Abu Dhabi as a tourist destination. The emirate had arrived in the world’s yachting arena. TCA Abu Dhabi’s team, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, took the emirate’s name to the world, flying the flag for the destination the world over, meeting every challenge head on with a perseverance that would be a defining factor of the campaign. Indeed the name chosen for the yacht was Azzam, meaning ‘determined’ in Arabic, was a quality displayed throughout by skipper Ian Walker, a twice Olympic silver medallist, and his intercontinental crew. Despite setbacks, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing won three in-port races, including a dream victory on home waters in January, and also enjoyed sensational success in the blue riband transatlantic leg from Miami to Lisbon – again catapulting the Arabian team into the history books. The decision to put an Emirati crew member on board created new sporting heroes for the people of the United Arab Emirates. Olympian Adil Khalid, who was selected for the sailing team after an exhaustive process, and Butti Al Muhairi, who made it on to the shore crew, were outstanding role models and helped inspire an Arab generation 92

Case Study: Abu Dhabi

to become involved in the sport. As race partners, Abu Dhabi had a close relationship with organisers throughout the event and became associated with the best qualities of the race through its sponsorship of the Abu Dhabi Seamanship Award – recognising bravery, valour and determination – that ‘Azzam’ factor once again.

Results The event delivered 120,604 visitors to the Stopover – well above the 100,000 target figure – and exceeded expectations on all major measures: »»

32,000 room nights associated with the event (target: 30,000)

»»

360 accredited media (target: 250)

»»

1.565 million AED (US $426,000) in combined sales by Destination Village retailers

»»

10 accredited international TV broadcasters in Abu Dhabi for the event

Views “The event has taken Abu Dhabi’s marine leisure proposition to the world and enabled us to demonstrate, first hand, our powerful credentials to a highly influential professionally yachting audience.” - His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman, TCA Abu Dhabi. “The hosting of the impressive Volvo Ocean Race fleet gives the destination a compelling opportunity to welcome thousands of sailing fans from around the world who are passionate followers of this event and to clearly demonstrate Abu Dhabi’s excellent credentials as a winter sailing destination. We have great winter weather, warm, clear waters, superb marina facilities and an increasing number of yacht and boat charterers, sailing schools and activities for this highend market segment to leverage. I hope many of the keen sailors that visited Abu Dhabi for the first time to link up with this superb event discovered enough to entice them back to our shores again.”- His Excellency Mubarak Al Muhairi, Director General, TCA Abu Dhabi. “Abu Dhabi has been nothing short of outstanding in its commitment to the Volvo Ocean Race both in terms of developing a state-ofthe-art vessel to compete, in compiling a truly international team and in creating a stunning Stopover destination that will serve as a benchmark for many in the future” - Knut Frostad, Volvo Ocean Race CEO.

CAMPER had two simple objectives heading into the race – to increase brand awareness worldwide and to maximise television exposure. For a family-owned, family-run company, a global sponsorship of this nature was an enormous undertaking, and as such the project formed the cornerstone of the company’s marketing programme over two years. CAMPER’s Chairman gave the sponsorship its status within both the company and the wider design and fashion industry, by referring to it as ‘The Project’. This nom de guerre was to be the motivation behind every part of the programme, both on and off the water.

Delivery CAMPER set itself apart from other sponsors by creating strong links from within its marketing drivers – design and lifestyle – and then transferring these back into the race itself. Design: A three-pronged approach linked the technical boat design to graphic design (with the boat’s stand out graphics) and architectural design (CAMPER’s distinctive pavilion). This approach allowed CAMPER to promote the sponsorship to its nonsports audience using the common thread of design and garnered coverage in titles such as Wallpaper, Disegno and Architectural Design (AD). Lifestyle: One of the main pillars of the CAMPER brand is Lifestyle and this sat comfortably alongside the sponsorship. CAMPER used its network of ‘ambassadors’ to encourage additional media interest and also invested in a comprehensive guest programme targeted at clients, customers and media in key Stopovers (Alicante, Sanya, Miami and Lorient). Using the backdrop of the CAMPER Pavilion, over 100 guests were invited to each In-Port/Race Start weekend to experience CAMPER in the Volvo Ocean Race and participate in a series of workshops showcasing new collections, design forums and commercial encounters. CAMPER’s involvement in the race formed a key element of the instore proposition in most CAMPER shops around the world. From

bags to POS, from window displays to uniforms, the CAMPER in the Volvo Ocean Race story was used not only to support the Ocean Race Collection product lines, but to communicate the sponsorship to a wider audience.

Results CAMPER met both of its key objectives thanks to great penetration in lifestyle and mainstream media, including television, which accounted for around two thirds of value as of the end of May. On the water, CAMPER were competitive throughout the race, won the In-Port Race in one of the team’s two home ports of Auckland, took victory on the final offshore leg and ended up in second place overall, all of which generated powerful coverage around the world. Camper also won the IWC Speed Record and the Media Crew Member award. To what extent global brand awareness outside of the key Stopover markets increased is a question CAMPER will continue to study closely over the coming months.

Views “From a brand perspective, the CAMPER brand is absolutely better known among yachting and sports enthusiasts, and overall global brand awareness is our main objective,” said Dalia Saliamonas, Project Director, CAMPER in the Volvo Ocean Race. “While we’re still waiting to see what the long-term payback will be, in terms of making a global statement, pushing the CAMPER brand into new markets and establishing it as a serious contender alongside other more globally known corporate brands, the project was undoubtedly a success. We feel that as the ‘new guys in town’ CAMPER has been up to par with the participating campaigns and we have definitely made our mark as a team. “CAMPER has now dovetailed this sponsorship into the America’s Cup where we are one of a family of sponsors and it will be interesting to see how this compares to a Volvo Ocean Race campaign.” 93


Commitment, fidelity and trust – three qualities at the heart of Groupama as a company and watchwords over the course of a 15-year partnership with Franck Cammas, the prolific French sailor at the head of the campaign. Groupama came into the race with an ambitious sporting goal, to win the race at the first attempt, and with a determination to mobilise staff internally around an international project that would project Groupama’s brand and reputation around the world, while contributing to its growing presence and credibility on social networks.

Delivery As the first French team competing in the race in 20 years, a vital step in activation was in engaging the French public. That meant working with national and local media to produce compelling content both in the build-up to the race and in its early stages. Skipper Franck Cammas wrote a weekly blog for the giant regional newspaper Ouest France, while a weekly spot on national TV station TF1 kept fans informed of the team’s progress in the most high-profile way imaginable in France. A highly professional PR operation running back at HQ in Lorient and travelling around the world to the Stopovers was key to this approach, as media were guaranteed high quality material to support their coverage. Having a charismatic and media friendly skipper such as Cammas was obviously a help, while including sailors from Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Sweden among the crew helped push the story internationally. The outstanding work of Media Crew Member Yann Riou, recognised with three leg awards over the course of the race, was also very influential. With Lorient in France included as the penultimate Stopover along the route, the campaign kept a natural focus on the back end of the race and the success of the sporting team, who came from behind to lead the overall standings as the fleet returned to Europe, contributed to what was a 94

360-degree approach. Commercial and hospitality spaces were set up in Alicante at the start and Lisbon and Lorient at the end, branding and calls with the boat organised through the Groupama HQ in Paris kept interest up internally and the campaign was rewarded with a rousing finish as the team completed an unexpected victory to take the Volvo Ocean Race trophy.

PUMA came into the race with four key objectives: »»

Sell PUMA Sailing and Volvo Ocean Race merchandise

»»

Build PUMA brand awareness within a new consumer segment

Results

»»

Build a social media network

The success of the campaign as a whole mirrored that of the sailing team. France delivered more print value than any other country and an enormous increase in TV audience.

»»

Build credibility for the PUMA brand and product in sailing

Delivery

From their victory in Galway, Groupama collected two hours of TV coverage as well as 180 print articles and 260 web clippings.

Views Franck Cammas in a message to Groupama: “You’ve been trusting me for 15 years and this shared history allows us to lead ambitious projects. Winning the toughest sailing race ever is also your victory. Without your commitment and your support, I wouldn’t have been able to lead this adventure to its end. Thanks to everyone.” Thierry Martel, Groupama CEO: “We are very proud of this exceptional victory. It means a lot for Groupama today. Above all, it’s a great feeling of pride for all the 38,500 employees of the Group, for all the work done both at sea and on the ground. It illustrates the tenacity, the faith in an ambitious project, the ability to gather and motivate a team, whatever the obstacles of the route are. It’s also a highly symbolic victory in the period we’re going through, and that’s the reason why it’s so beautiful. Thanks to Franck, his crew and all the shore team for writing a new and wonderful chapter of the history we’ve been building together for 15 years now.”

Consistent brand message across the campaign was key to engaging hundreds of thousands of consumers, from the award winning design execution of the graphics on the boat, to a strategic standup paddle board collaboration with surfer Laird Hamilton and boat designer Juan Kouyoumdjian, to on-the-ground marketing execution and ongoing publicity campaigns. The race allowed PUMA to put their own unique spin on sport in a way that reaches new consumers and brings fresh energy to the scene. The challenge for such a long event is keeping excitement high over nine months. Additions from the 2008-09 campaign like the collaboration with Laird Hamilton and PUMA’s ocean preservation programme with Marmo helped sports lifestyle stay relevant beyond sailing performance.

Results A unique mobile pop-up event and retail store constructed at race Stopovers produced 153 selling days and saw PUMA exceed sales goals for the event. At six of the 10 Stopovers, sales surpassed targets by well over 100%. A combination of above and below the line marketing techniques fired brand awareness. Beyond sailing, the Volvo Ocean Race was a nine-month “extreme marketing” campaign bringing categories such as running, soccer, fitness and the PUMA social campaign directly to consumers during the Stopovers, using PUMA’s Mar Mostro and the PUMA Quad as the central hub of on-site activations.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Case Study: PUMA

Case Study: Groupama

PUMA introduced their ocean preservation campaign with the octopus character Marmo allowing PUMA to connect with and educate children. The motto was simple: PUMA loves the ocean and people should take care of the things they love. The press campaign began with the team introduction, boat launch and Laird Hamilton SUP partnership announcement packaged into a global media event that made international news. The next global press push focused on the Race Start in Alicante and was supported by each Stopover market, resulting in major TV, newspaper, magazine, online and blog coverage in each of the host countries. The unfortunate dismasting of Mar Mostro was parlayed into a media opportunity that captured global news headlines and showcased the fortitude and courage of the PUMA Ocean Racing team as they sought to get back in the race. In addition to Facebook and Twitter, PUMA partnered with Tumblr and Instagram to host a blogger trip during the Abu Dhabi Stopover. Ten non-sailing bloggers were handpicked based on their following and content. The non-traditional media trip resulted in an estimated 40 million impressions of PUMA Sailing content. PUMA’s creative use of social media attracted attention from outlets such as Mashable, Adweek and ESPN. Many of the lessons learned during the Volvo Ocean Race were incorporated into PUMA social media execution for the 2012 Olympics in London.

Views “The Volvo Ocean Race is one of the world’s iconic sporting events, and it has proved to be an extremely successful marketing tool for us,” says former PUMA CEO Jochen Zeitz. “The success of this event, which is entirely on brand, completely consistent and really well executed, confirms that PUMA has cachet beyond the sporting world,” says one of the judges from the Exhibitor Online Corporate Awards, won by PUMA for their Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 execution. 95


Sanya’s priority for the Volvo Ocean Race was to lift the lid on China’s best kept secret – a tropical paradise boasting yearround sunshine, sandy beaches and a richly diverse cultural life. The team itself was a late entry in an older-generation boat, meaning the focus was never on winning the trophy. Instead, the team worked with the Stopover to boost name recognition and associate the city with the values shown by skipper Mike Sanderson, the youngest man to lead a team to victory in the race, and a crew that included Teng Jiang He, who earned the nickname Tiger and became the first Chinese sailor to compete in the race. It was also a goal to enthuse and excite the Chinese public around the sport of sailing and the Volvo Ocean Race event. This campaign was seen as a stepping stone to engaging more Chinese sailors in the next race edition.

Delivery Sanya always faced a battle to win media coverage from the teams in newer, faster boats but in Sanderson they had a skipper who was particularly adept at making headlines. From his witty, entertaining blogs from the oceans to a sailing strategy that saw them push the boat to the limit, Sanderson ensured that Sanya would only be out of the spotlight when bad luck forced them out for repairs. When they were on the racecourse they invariably attracted attention for all the right reasons – most notably when they built a huge advantage on Leg 2 on the way to the Maldives and then led the fleet out of Auckland and into another spell at the front before misfortune struck again. Chinese crewmember Tiger played an important role throughout the campaign, helping to generate ongoing media coverage in China via interviews from the boat and on shore. During the Sanya Stopover he took on a punishing schedule of interviews and publicity duties. Sanya’s colourful pavilion was a regular feature in the Stopovers, the team website featured regularly updating content in English and Chinese, backed up by a big presence on Facebook, and cross96

promotion with sponsor Discover Ireland ensured a lively atmosphere at all the ports.

Results The sailing team were buffeted by bad luck from the start of the race yet Mike Sanderson and his crew, backed by an outstanding operation on the ground who were awarded the overall DHL Shore Crew Award, proved particularly adept at turning a crisis into an opportunity. Forced out of Leg 1 within the first 24 hours, they used the operation to get them back into the water to generate effective media coverage. When they stormed into the lead on Leg 2 they enjoyed the limelight again before being forced into another pit stop that led to more media value from an unscheduled trip to Madagascar. The highlight of the campaign naturally came in Sanya itself, with the team’s sixth place arrival being greeted like a glorious victory, as tens of thousands of well-wishers packed the docks and race village to welcome them home. The huge footfall in Sanya, the international spotlight on Tiger and Sanderson’s ability to get the media talking about his team ensured the campaign was a sparkling success – even if the crew on the water could not quite get the podium place the skipper had dreamed of when accepting the challenge.

Views “The Volvo Ocean Race has provided a tremendous platform to introduce the world to Sanya.” – Sanya City Deputy Vice Mayor Wu Yanjun. “The city of Sanya is now firmly on everyone’s lips. At the start of the campaign so many people were asking the same question –‘Is it a company?’ – and by the end so many people were aware of this fascinating and stunning holiday destination at the most southern tip of China.” – Team statement.

Telefónica entered their third successive Volvo Ocean Race with a young Spanish skipper in Iker Martínez and a real desire to show the potential of an overwhelmingly Spanish team. Telefónica has been supporting sailing in Spain for over a decade so entering the Volvo Ocean Race once again was an obvious move for the company. Further goals were to burnish the team’s reputation as a nurturer of sailing talent across all levels in Spain, to showcase the potential of teamwork coupled with cutting edge technology – values closely associated with Telefónica as a company – and to win the media battle in Spain.

Delivery Telefónica worked closely with partners on a regional and national level to pull out all the stops at the first of the host ports. The appearance of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Spain even before the gates were officially open – with the Princess agreeing to become the godmother of the boat – gave the campaign a royal association that was only strengthened when the Prince came again to Alicante to send the fleet on its way. Alicante featured the full Telefónica PR push thanks to a huge pavilion in the Race Village visited by over 20.000 people, while a successful merchandising effort left Alicante awash with the team’s distinctive Telefónica light blue colour. From the start of the race, Telefónica made the media a focus, drawing on the shore team’s experience in that area to generate widespread coverage in targeted outlets. It was also vital that for Telefónica the race did not start and finish with the first and last segments of the race. Long before the start, Martínez and his crew were ambassadors for Telefónica at their different bases around Spain and after the race the team embarked on a Tour of Spain to give thousands more Telefónica fans the chance to see the boat up close.

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Case Study: Telefónica

Case Study: Sanya

Results A powerhouse start ensured Telefónica would be the focus of the story for at least the first six months. Three successive victories in the first three legs matched a feat not achieved since Steinlager 2 more than 20 years ago and while they were ultimately unable to secure overall victory the fact that they led for so long meant barely a report was written about the race without mentioning them. That success is shown in stark relief in the figures for mentions in print, with over 17,000 for Telefónica against 13,000 for race winners Groupama. The Telefónica campaign also provided the iconic image of the race thanks to the ‘wave’ video that became an internet sensation (see page 46). Thanks to the work of the Telefónica media team, working closely with the Volvo Ocean Race PR and distribution network, the video was seen by millions of people in news bulletins around the world as well as online. From a brand and PR point of view the race has exceeded Telefónica’s best expectations receiving continual positive feedback both from media and clients reassuring the exploitation strategy was well orientated.

Views “The main aim was to project a positive image of Spain, at a time where we really need it: that has clearly been achieved, showing our technological, industrial and financial ability. The other aim was to win and we were really close at times, although it wasn’t to be in the end.” – Pedro Campos, team CEO. “Sponsoring Team Telefónica in the Volvo Ocean Race has helped us strengthen ties with our employees, customers, subsidiaries and partners worldwide. The commitment, dedication and pursuit of excellence of the team, led by Iker Martínez, was the key to achieving our goals. They have been excellent ambassadors of our brand wherever they’ve been and that makes us extremely proud of this sponsorship project.” – Dante Cacciatore, Director de Comunicación Comercial y Marca Telefónica España. 97

Case Study: DHL

Case Study: Inmarsat

DHL saw the Volvo Ocean Race as an ideal complement to its global sponsorship portfolio – which includes Formula 1TM, IMG Fashion Week events, Manchester United and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra – as well as a unique chance to strengthen its reputation as the go-to problem solvers for logistics around the world. Equally important, the race provided an opportunity to build deeper relationships in both Business to Consumer and Business to Business spaces. A Volvo Ocean Race audience of senior managers and decision makers was a perfect fit for DHL, the global market leader in the logistics industry.

Delivery Beyond the commitment to seeing the race run smoothly, DHL set about activating at all Stopovers. The company entertained 50 to 60 key customers on average in each of the 10 markets, demonstrating the scale and complexity of the logistics in the race and showcasing DHL’s capabilities. Their individual take on activation was to use a three-stage approach with their guests – a logistics presentation to give a window on operations, a tour of the race village to show the scale of the undertaking and a one-day experience on the water over the race weekend, taking in the In-Port Race action. Guests enjoyed the spectacle of racing from on board the Ocean Race Club Spectator Boat. DHL also benefited from TV exposure in the Live In-Port Race programme by branding the start mark, a high-profile branding opportunity on the water. Inmarsat’s involvement was all about moving the company closer to the heart and delivery of the race. Inmarsat supported its third edition as a Volvo Ocean Race sponsor by showcasing the latest generation FleetBroadband maritime communications products, alongside continued free-of-charge commitment to the global satellite safety service, GMDSS. For the first time, the Inmarsat budget satphone, the IsatPhone Pro was included in the safety kit. As the global leader in maritime communications, Inmarsat used the world’s toughest yacht race to demonstrate the company’s equipment in the most extreme conditions.

Delivery The introduction of the Media Crew Member in 2008-09 helped set a new standard for coverage of the race and for the 2011-12 edition Inmarsat associated the company ever more closely with the programme with the decision to use its own Inmarsat Media Crew Member and to broaden the footprint of the MCM Award. Mark Covell, a former Olympic silver medallist and an onboard MCM from 2008-09, was recruited to cover the race on behalf of Inmarsat, acting as an ambassador for the brand. Covell told the story of the race, and Inmarsat’s role in making it happen, via his own blog and by taking-on commentary duties on several occasions during live TV broadcasts. Inmarsat also brought the MCMs into film schools in Miami and Galway to explain the unique way in which they work and utilised them during partner conferences. Inmarsat found the perfect way to put a spotlight on the work of the MCMs with a sponsored award presented at the end of each leg to the best performing MCM, and with one overall winner decided at the end. The award helped make stars of the MCMs themselves while associating the brand with creativity and inspiration as well as technology and reliability. 98

Inmarsat’s media team were able to leverage incidents on board the boats to highlight the themes of safety, telemedicine and communications as the race on the water hit dramatic new heights. Meanwhile, the leg-by-leg MCM awards generated great feedback, particularly on the race’s social media networks, while the overall award became one of the most highly coveted prizes in the race as a whole.

Results The Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 exceeded the Board’s expectations and has been judged an outstanding sponsorship for business purposes. Inmarsat engaged with key audiences at multiple ports, linking these to global partner conferences and ensuring engagement with high level figures in government and regulation. Inmarsat targeted small vessels with the FB150, which was a backup terminal on the Volvo Ocean Race to its big brother the FB500. Inmarsat report rapid take-up for the new product, in part linked to its proving on this latest edition.

Views Executive Chairman, Andrew Sukawaty: “This is our third consecutive Volvo Ocean Race. It illustrates Inmarsat’s core competencies and commitment to safety in the Maritime environment. Our employees and customers are thrilled by this global spectacular. The 2014-15 edition will be even more spectacular.” Rupert Pearce, Chief Executive Officer: “The Volvo Ocean Race is an outstanding sponsor opportunity. Inmarsat is delighted with the race’s organisation which delivers on our goals. We are inspired by the professionalism of all involved. Inmarsat looks forward to powering global connectivity from our existing and next generation satellite fleets. The crews and MCMs will bring the race alive to billions of viewers around the globe, via Inmarsat.”

To bolster the company’s image in the consumer space, DHL devised and ran the DHL Shore Crew Award, designed to celebrate the unsung heroes of the race whose work behind the scenes ensured the teams were able to compete.

Results The Volvo Ocean Race could not exist without a logistics partner performing consistently at the top of their game. DHL proved well capable of meeting that challenge and going beyond what was required, pulling out all the stops to get broken boats back on the water by delivering replacement masts and other equipment despite considerable pressures. Getting daggerboards to PUMA in Auckland and new masts to three of the teams at different stages generated good news stories across the media, while branded buoys on race weekends throughout the nine months of competition and naming rights to the In-Port Race in Itajaí in Brazil boosted awareness of DHL as the Official Logistics Partner of the race.

Views Roger Crook, CEO Global Forwarding & Freight: “The Volvo Ocean Race is a world-class and truly global venture. We are proud to have supported one of the most demanding international sporting events with our know-how in transports and logistics. “Once again, we have proved our ability to deliver against extremely tight timelines in challenging environments around the world and deal with the complex logistics of big sporting events. It’s a perfect fit. High-sea sailing requires core characteristics such as teamwork, passion, speed, technology and a can-do-spirit. These are the same values that drive performance at DHL.”

For Thrane & Thrane – a Cobham plc company – the Volvo Ocean Race provides an unparalleled test platform as well as a showcase for a global audience of sailing fans, customers and distributors.

Delivery The strategy for the 2011-12 edition was a familiar one for the company – get the Volvo Ocean Race right and in so doing prove that Thrane & Thrane’s latest generations of SAILOR® FleetBroadband and VHF equipment can cope with anything the elements can throw at them. The suite of products supplied by Thrane & Thrane enabled the Volvo Ocean Race’s transmission of multimedia material, including live HD video, from the boats, while the navigators were able to download vital weather data, and tracking, and safety communication equipment kept the boats in constant touch with Race HQ in Alicante. Feedback from the boats means Thrane & Thrane can make vital improvements, increasing the value of the relationship even more.

Views Thinus Svendsen, Project & Sponsorship Manager at Thrane & Thrane: “Our relationship with Volvo Ocean Race goes back many years. The 2011-12 edition was our third race in a row as exclusive communication equipment sponsor, but in fact Thrane & Thrane products have been among the skippers’ choice since the early Whitbread days. It is actually a parallel technology race that’s going on here. Every race edition presents the latest developments in race boat design; the same applies to our communication products installed on board. For us the race is the ultimate test platform and our SAILOR equipment continues to pass with flying colours. We won’t find a bigger stage to demonstrate SAILOR quality, reliability and performance to a global audience of sailing fans, as well as our markets, distributors and customers. And we are delighted that the teams and organisers put so much faith in us.” Walther Thygesen, CEO, Thrane & Thrane: “The Volvo Ocean Race really is about Life at the Extreme so we relish the challenge of putting our equipment through the world’s toughest off-shore racing event. It is the ultimate test bench and we benefit from immediate and invaluable feedback from the crews, which has made Volvo Ocean Race a unique contributor to our product development process.”

Boston Consulting Group had several aims coming into the race, the company’s second as Official Management and Strategy Consulting Partner. BCG saw the Stopovers as a hospitality platform, and the race itself as a recruiting platform for supporting brand and showing an open case example of BCG expertise. At the same time, the race was seen as a focus for internal mobilisation of BCG employees and a way to boost branding among the general business public and increase media play in the business press.

Bringing clients and management together at Stopovers proved a powerful platform for BCG, with a focus on client courses and seminars. The company built a case example based on the race and made a recruiting video, while internal articles in BCG kept staff involved. As Race Partners, BCG were able to give invitees a behind-the-scenes look at how the Volvo Ocean Race works and see the extent of what BCG is able to do.

BCG is steadily increasing the return from the partnership with the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, with the company convinced that there is even higher potential given the right activation. Feedback from clients around the Stopovers was excellent, with one typical reaction praising it as a magnificent event, with rich content and offering a chance to get behind the scenes of the Volvo Ocean Race.

“We are pleased to partner with sailing’s toughest race in developing both the race and ourselves further. The race is inspiring both to our clients and management – on and off the water.” – Gustav Gotteberg, Principal at The Boston Consulting Group.

“I like not just the physical appearance but also what it represents in what we had to do to win it,” said skipper Chris Nicholson after his CAMPER team collected their prizes for winning the IWC Schaffhausen Speed Record Challenge. “We certainly had to do a lot to win them. To be honest, this probably sounds a bit sentimental, but I will probably enjoy wearing it and looking at it and remembering that 560-odd miles we did from Lisbon to Lorient.”

Around the Stopovers, IWC were tireless and inventive activators, running fashion shoots and media tours, inviting sporting – and actual – royalty in the form of Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo, two of the world’s greatest ever footballers, and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, who was invited for the launch of the special timepiece at the start of the race in Alicante in front of 60 selected media.

The seriousness with which the teams competed for the 24hour race record demonstrated the success of the strategy, while providing regular media exposure and a prominent ‘good news’ story at the end of the race as IWC graciously provided an extra watch to Mike Pammenter, the crew member who missed the winning leg because of injury.

The sponsorship of the IWC Speed Record Challenge provided more media value and brand association, as the teams battled hard to post the longest distance in any 24-hour period. It was another way of showcasing the Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12” – a timepiece specifically crafted for the race and offered as a prize for all the sailors on board the boat posting the best record.

Meanwhile, brand ambassadors of an international stature brought an intense media spotlight, notably with the appearances of Zidane in Alicante and Figo in Lisbon as ‘jumpers’ from the boat.

As official timekeeper, IWC played a highly visible role in the race from start to finish. The company’s technology and timing ran prominently on the official website and race trackers, as well as out on the water on the official start boat at all in-port races and leg starts.

The IWC status as both race and team sponsor gave the company the access required to give unique ‘money can’t buy’ experiences to clients, retailers and media with behind-the-scenes access at every Stopover.

A glance at the Honours Board is all it takes to see how the format of the Volvo Ocean Race shares the spotlight around in a way that benefits every team. While Groupama took away the overall prize for victory in the 2011-12 race, every one of the six teams had reason to celebrate over close to nine months of competitive action.

Five of the six teams celebrated victory in at least one of the offshore legs, with only Team Sanya – racing in an older generation boat – not making it into the winner’s circle. Victory in an offshore leg of the Volvo Ocean Race is recognised as an immense achievement, with leg wins regularly producing iconic visuals as sailors arrive back on dry land exhausted but elated.

The Inmarsat award for the best MCM on each leg was a great way to honour the work of the Media Crew Members. Four of the six MCMs walked away with at least one of the leg prizes, while Hamish Hooper of CAMPER won widespread popular acclaim as the overall champion.

104

All but one of the teams won at least one of the in-port races that were broadcast live around the world in HD.

Telefónica´s achievement in winning the first three legs meant they captured the lion´s share of media coverage over the first half of the series. As overall race leaders right up until the close of Leg 7, they were constantly referred to as the early pacesetters and barely a report on the race failed to mention them.

The decision to promote the value of the In-Port Series meant there was a second major trophy to be fought for and again the battle raged until the end, with the title not decided until the final day of racing in Galway on July 7.

Four of the six teams were still in contention for overall victory with just around a week’s competitive sailing to go in a race that lasted close to nine months. This was the closest ever finish to a Volvo Ocean Race and the intense competition made for record coverage in the media.

The IWC Schaffhausen Speed Record Challenge rewarded the team with the fastest 24-hour run on each leg. CAMPER, Groupama and PUMA shared the honours during the race, with CAMPER being recognised as the overall Speed Kings thanks to their blistering display on the penultimate leg.

The Abu Dhabi Seamanship and DHL Shore Crew Awards recognised achievements that were not necessarily connected with success out on the race course. Individual acts of seamanship and heroic efforts from shore crew provided good news stories across the fleet. Abu Dhabi, Sanya, Groupama and PUMA were all honoured here.

The attention given to the leaders in each of the long offshore legs meant that just being out in front guaranteed widespread coverage. In the same way that breakaway riders in the Tour de France have the cameras trained on them for long periods, the spotlight was firmly on Team Sanya when, for example, they went out in front on Leg 2 and led the fleet out of Auckland at the start of Leg 5.

The battle for overall honours raged throughout, with four teams still harbouring realistic chances with just a week’s sailing left to go. All five of the new boats in the race had appeared on the podium after just one leg and one in-port race. The podium places would continue to be shared around throughout the race, with five different winners of both offshore legs and In-Port Races.

The closest race for victory in an offshore leg saw Telefónica (1st) and CAMPER (2nd) come in with just one minute and 57 seconds between them after more than 4,000 nautical miles racing on the first stage of Leg 2. In Auckland, the battle for the third podium place again saw Telefónica edge CAMPER, this time by just one minute 33 seconds after 5,220 nautical miles. On the run-in to the finish line in Lisbon, winners Abu Dhabi were just 150 metres ahead of secondplaced Groupama after crossing the Atlantic, while Telefónica beat CAMPER for fourth place by just 102 seconds.

Broadening the platform The introduction of the new one-design boat for the next edition of the race in 2014-15 is a major step in broadening the platform for entry and helping the race achieve the stated goal of increasing the size of the fleet – without sacrificing the quality of a world class sports event.

The Volvo Ocean 65 »»

The next two editions of the Volvo Ocean Race will be raced in the 65-foot one-design, meaning all the boats will be identical and putting more emphasis on the racing on the water.

»»

The new boat is being designed, engineered and built to be competitive for a minimum of two races around the world.

Budget »»

The cost to teams for each boat, including a full set of sails, will be less than 5 million euros.

»»

It will now be possible to mount a competitive campaign for between 12 and 15 million euros, including the cost of the boat.

»»

As the boats will compete in a minimum of two editions, the boat cost is effectively reduced by 50 percent for teams competing in two editions, while boosting the re-sale value for those choosing to do only one.

»»

There will be shared shore support and spare parts pooling for all teams, which will translate into further significant cost reductions.

Crew size »»

The boats will have a crew of eight sailors plus one Media Crew Member.

»»

All-female teams will be allowed two extra crew members, making a total of 10 plus one MCM.

Construction »»

The boat will be equipped with the latest multimedia and satellite communication equipment, meaning content coming from the oceans will be richer than ever before.

»»

The new boat is being designed by Farr Yacht Design in the United States. The company has been responsible for five winning entries in the first 11 editions of the race.

»»

Green Marine in the United Kingdom is leading a consortium of four boatyards constructing the new one-design. The others are Decision in Switzerland, Multiplast in France and Persico in Italy.

Timeline Mould construction began on time in August 2012 Early 2013 – Announcement of route for 2014-15 edition First boat will be launched in June 2013 Every seven weeks a new boat to be launched Current set of moulds can produce up to 10 boats

Communication innovation Moving to a one-design class of boat for at least the next two editions is a massive undertaking but one that is entirely in keeping with a race that has never been afraid to innovate, not least in the introduction of new communications technology.

Early years 1973-86 »» Only HF (High Frequency) Radio Telephone on board »» Teams reported in once each week to Portishead Radio Station, then transferred to Race HQ

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Museo Volvo Ocean Race

Behind the scenes at the Museum The Volvo Ocean Race threw open the doors to a brand new interactive museum in Alicante in June, just as the 2011-12 race was approaching its thrilling climax. The museum, designed by architects Mather & Co., gives visitors a chance to experience for themselves the extreme challenges faced by Volvo Ocean Race sailors. Operating in partnership with the regional Valencia government, the state-of-the-art museum is designed to inspire new generations of fans and represents a striking investment in the city of Alicante – the race’s home since 2010. “It is with tremendous pride that we are opening the doors to the Museo Volvo Ocean Race, a new and unique project that will surprise, delight and inform thousands of visitors each year,” Volvo Ocean Race CEO Knut Frostad said at the inauguration. “Alicante is our home and we are thrilled to say we can welcome our neighbours to visit.” The Museum looks over the high-tech Race Control room (see page 12-13) and offers visitors a chance to learn how the boats stay in contact from the oceans. Other exhibits include:

History of the race Learn about the 11 editions of a race that began life in 1973 as the Whitbread Round the World Race and has provided the world’s toughest sporting challenge ever since.

Life on deck

A tour through the boats themselves and the trials of life at sea – from freeze-dried food to extremes of temperature few of us will ever experience.

The oceans today Learn about marine ecosystems and how mankind is threatening the survival of these habitats.

Technology Interactive exhibits take you through the cutting edge technology on board the boats, how they are tracked from the most remote locations on earth and HD video is transmitted back live.

Heroes and legends The extreme challenge of this regatta has made heroes of its crew members, with many taking on the status of legends for their sacrifice and achievement.

Volvo Ocean Race Museum in Göteborg Volvo also opened a Volvo Ocean Race section of the Volvo museum in Göteborg in 2011.
