Alicante Race Start

For the second time, the Spanish port of Alicante played host to the start of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12. Six yachts, including Mar Mostro, lined up the start of Leg 1, some 7000 miles to Cape Town. The starters gun was fired by the Spanish Crown Prince Felipe from a Naval ship and the contenders set off into the Med.
