Background: Two decades after buying the Race from Whitbread, Volvo has now transferred ownership to a new group, led by Richard Brisius and Johan Salén.  The ownership change was announced before the finish of the Volvo Ocean Race last year, and the full transaction has now been completed. Going forward, the 'around the world' race will now be known as The Ocean Race with Volvo staying in the race family as a significant commercial partner, the next edition coming in 2021.
