Previous Offshore Races

Green Dragon competed in the 2008 – 2009 Volvo Ocean Race with Ian Walker, British Olympic silver medallist, making his debut as skipper. Green Dragon finished 5th. Ian Walker later won the 2015 race with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing.

At the launch the Volvo Open 70 was not a singular yacht design but a set of design rules to which competing boats must adhere. Competing teams design and build boats within the scope of this rule to try and come up with the fastest boat . The Volvo 70 repeatedly broke monohull speed record and Volvo 70’s held the record for over 10 years. The Volvo 70 was replaced in the Ocean race in 2014/15 by the Volvo 65 but the Volvo 70 live on and are regular seen on the race course competition at the highest level around the world.

Green Dragon is a Volvo 70 designed and built for high performance, long distance offshore racing at the highest level. Green Dragon is a great example of a pure-bred racing machine, ready to endure the toughest of conditions. Green Dragon shines in reaching conditions and is a very good overall performer. She is continually maintained and is great boat for offshore racing charter for a team looking to race and an iconic Grand Prix Class Zero yacht.
