The Scheveningen quay was absolutely packed. After an intensive build, Team AkzoNobel's boat is ready to be officially christened. The Mayor of The Hague has the honour of performing the ceremony on the very spot where the Volvo Ocean Race will finish.

Under the watchful eye of invited guests, press and many sailing fans, the next generation of young sailors take to the water in small vessels to escort the team of Team AkzoNobel into the harbour.

To bring the Volvo Ocean Race and the associated sponsorship closer to home, literally, Reuring was given free rein to transform the lobby of AkzoNobel's head office into a real VOR experience. The ocean race can be followed live on huge screens and in a life-sized replica of the boat you can channel your inner captain.
