Musto Launch Commemorative Volvo Ocean Race Collection

Musto has launched the Official Volvo Ocean Race collection to allow fans of the Race to proudly show their support.

Musto has launched the Official Volvo Ocean Race collection to allow fans of the Race to proudly show their support. The Volvo Ocean Race is one of the toughest events in sport, visiting 10 cities in 10 countries and covering a total of 38,739 nautical miles (the equivalent to 44,580 miles or 71,745 km). It tests the skill, determination and endurance of competitors to the limits, exposing them to some of the harshest climate conditions in the world.

Since the first edition of the Race 40 years ago, its reach has been vastly increased by a quantum leap in media and technology, with embedded reporters now offering 24-hour surveillance. The Race is now watched by over 1 billion people across the world, supporting the teams throughout every leg of their epic journey.

The new Volvo Ocean Race Collection utilises the technical fabrics and market-leading innovation that the sailing community has come to expect from the authentic British brand. However, it is the design elements unique to the Volvo Ocean Race that will make this Collection a must-have for fans around the world.

All items in the Collection pay homage to the Race, incorporating the official Volvo Ocean Race branding in a variety of ways.

The Ocean Race Jacket and Trousers are highly technical products incorporating 3-layer GORE-TEX® PRO membrane, which is two times as thick as the standard membrane, providing optimum protection and durability. The jacket has a fluorescent roll-away GORE-TEX® hood with Paclite® technology and a shaped spume visor.

The Newport Jacket and Gothenburg Jacket, named after the Rhode Island stopover and final port in Sweden, display an artistic representation of the new one-design Volvo Ocean 65 on the internal mesh in a significant nod to the high performance racing boat which is tipped to make the 2014/15 Race the tightest yet. The Collection boasts a number of iconic t-shirts bearing the “Life at the Extreme” slogan which epitomises the Race. The Tour T also details each of the different stopovers of the Race and the corresponding nautical mile information on the back, while the Map T bears a graphic print of the Race’s course and the Volvo 65 T pays homage to the masterpiece of Farr Yacht Design. The adorable Kids T bearing the ‘Future Skipper’ slogan on the reverse is set to go down a storm with younger Race fans, inspiring a future generation of sailors willing to push the boundaries of the sport.

The Collection also includes the comfortable and lightweight Alicante Jacket and Gilet, and a wide range of luggage with strong Volvo Ocean Race design elements including a carbon fibre effect inspired by the Volvo Ocean 65.

Nigel Musto comments, “We are very proud to be supporting the Volvo Ocean Race, a historic Race which has long been a part of our DNA. We continually work with Volvo Ocean Race sailors to test and develop our sailing gear. Their feedback, combined with the consistent creativity and innovation of the Musto brand, has been used to create a functional and durable collection for supporters of the Race, designed to hold a special sentimental value for them too.” The range will launch at the Gothenburg Boat Show on 31st January and will be available on Musto.com from this date. It will be showcased across existing and future sales points and at the host ports along the way, which include Abu Dhabi, Alicante and Gothenburg.
