Dongfeng Race Team

 

 

Dongfeng Race Team are back for a second shot at the Volvo Ocean Race under inspirational French skipper Charles Caudrelier, after far exceeding expectations with a podium finish in 2014-15.

 

This time, the team is 100% backed by Dongfeng Motor Corporation, the Chinese motor manufacturer headquartered in the Hubei province city of Wuhan – and is once again committed to developing the sport of offshore sailing in China.

 

Caudrelier’s mixed crew will again include Chinese sailors – and the French skipper has boosted his squad with world-class offshore ocean racers from around the globe.

 

Having won hearts and minds worldwide in 2014-15 with their open and innovative approach to storytelling, Dongfeng are looking to go better – and win the Volvo Ocean Race for the first time in China’s history.
