Not Just ‘Another Day at the Office’

Visitors to Volvo Ocean Race Village get a chance to find out just what life is like aboard ship at the “Another Day at the Office” exhibit in the dome theater. Comparing shipboard life with a typical day on shore, they quickly discover that even mundane tasks like eating and personal hygiene require a whole new perspective when competing in the long distance endurance race. Participants are divided up into teams and quizzed on the race and life at sea and take part in physical challenges. The interactive exhibit is just one of many that have engaged thousands of visitors since the Newport Stopover began May 7. Racing heats up May 14-16 with exhibition and in-port regattas, and the teams depart May 17 in the race to Lisbon. (Photo by Rik Roukens)
