The 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race completed its stopover in Lisbon, Portugal on Friday.

This leg of the race saw Dutchman Bouwe Bekking’s Team Brunel hold off a late push by Spanish team MAPFRE to win.

The 13th edition of the race will cover over 45,000 nautical miles over nine months while passing through 12 cities.

The only North American stopover will take place from May 8 to May 20, 2018, in Newport.

Volvo Ocean Race in Newport

The race was last in Newport in 2015 and saw more than 130,000 people visit the Race Village at Fort Adams State Park between May 5 and May 17.

In comparison, 65,000 visited Newport for the 2012 America's Cup finals.

The large crowds during the 12-day event ranked Newport ahead of Abu Dhabi and on equal footing with Cape Town, even though Newport’s population is a fraction of those ports.
