The Hague arrival highlights | Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15:

Jun 18, 2015: In the middle of the night, a tired fleet arrived for a quick pit-stop and some rest in The Hague on their way to Gothenburg on Leg 9. Here's a look back at the highlights.

Volvo Ocean Race Pitstop at The Hague - for the first time in the Volvo Ocean Race, a pit-stop. The crews will sail out of The Hague, Netherlands, in the same order and timing that they sailed in, with the first boat (Alvimedica) resuming racing at 12:00 local time on June 20.

Maybe you’ve wondered about the brightly coloured suits the sailors wear whenever the weather is bad or the boats are going fast. Often called “Foulies” but more properly, Foul Weather gear – the name pretty much says it all. The sailors go to great lengths to make sure they are wearing the very best clothing around. MUSTO has worked with the race since its early days and each edition is a test track for improvements to pass on to their customers.
