The friends you make during a Volvo race can last a lifetime, whether it's the shared experience offshore or onshore there is a common, often unspoken, bond.

When a race is over the teams and management, propagate all over the circuit. You can having a coffee, more likely a beer, in Sardinia or St Tropez or Sydney and a familiar face will join you.It's the nod, the handshake, the eye contact, the unspoken bond.

When the next race starts many of the crews will be mixed in with different teams and that confidence that your competitor will be your rescuer if it all "turns to custard" in the middle of the ocean.
