Get Involved!

We want you to get involved with the Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi by joining our team as an Official Volunteer - over 200 positions are now available for you to choose from!

From overseeing many of the top attractions at the Destination Village, to serving as accreditation officers and information ambassadors, or assisting with race operations, being part of the Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi as an Official Volunteer is an unforgettable experience.

Commitment and enthusiasm is a must as our Volunteers are, for many event visitors, the “first face” of the Stopover and one of the main reasons behind its success.

Volunteers will undergo full pre-event preparatory training, including a specialized Volvo Ocean Race mentor programme, and will receive official certification of their involvement.

Volunteers will be provided with specially designed Volvo Ocean Race clothing from Musto, free transportation and parking, a commemorative gift, daily meals and a chance to get up close and personal with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing and its awesome Volvo65 yacht, Azzam.

Volunteers must be 16-years and over, be able to commit to at least three days, plus a half-day site orientation/training, and speak English and/or Arabic fluently.

For more info on how you can get involved, email us on [email protected] or contact Nicole Scheffer on +971 50 1119747.

“I was delighted to be part of Team Abu Dhabi welcoming sailing enthusiasts, sailing media and tourists to not only a totally new part of the world but also showing how Abu Dhabi does things in style and with great panache once it makes a commitment to such a prestigious event.”
