Team Vestas Wind has become the seventh team to confirm its participation in the race. It will be led by six-time world champion Chris Nicholson, who will take part in the Volvo Ocean Race for the fifth time.

In addition to Nicholson, the crew is joined by Danes Nikolaj Sehested and Peter Vibroe.

Team Vestas Wind is the first team from Denmark to decide to sail in the Volvo Ocean Race.

They will compete against Team SCA, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, Dongfeng Race Team, Team Brunel, Team Alvimedica and a Spanish team whose title sponsor is yet to be announced.

Team Vestas Wind will be tested in August with a crew sailing 2,000 nautical miles non-stop on the new VOR 65 monotype. This is a prerequisite for all teams.
