Applying lessons learned from Volvo Ocean Race

This March 30, 2013, photo provided by Mark Towill shows team Alvimedica rounding Cape Horn in the lead in the fifth leg of the Volvo Ocean Race. With the wind, and their competitors at their backs, Charlie Enright and Mark Towill rounded Cape Horn and took a few seconds to savor the accomplishment. Considered to be the nautical equivalent of summiting Mount Everest, the rounding came in daylight, going 30 knots downwind on the fifth leg of the Volvo Ocean Race.

As the Volvo Ocean Race makes its way to Newport, state and local officials hope to apply the lessons learned from the 2015 stopover.
