I was a full-time volunteer at the Volvo Ocean Race, Boston Port Stop. The event was very successful due to the support it received from the city and location. The event held on Fan Pier had an excellent view of the skyline and an up-close view of the boats. It was easy to see that the event was growing day by day as the word spread throughout the city.
The event was hardly known in the beginning but due to the location and ease of access for those living in the city it quickly became the must-see event. I would like to congratulate everyone that was involved in creating the event. It was truly one that none of us will forget.
