    Alicante is in 2017 for the 4th time the port of departure of the legendary Volvo Ocean Race, 3 times won by a Dutch participation, Flyer by Conny van rietschoten and ABNAMRO 1. On 22 October start again 7 participants in the race with 2 NL participants. The museum is free accessible and interactive. It gives a beautiful image of the history of the race and let the human side also well seen in the movie. From the museum, you can look directly in the controlroom where during the race the contact with participants is maintained. Museum is very worth a visit of more than an hour.
