Sailing enthusiasts were given a foretaste of the world's longest yacht race when Olympian Zbigniew Kania and the crew of his yacht Volvo Ocean Race won the Delphia 24 Cup, held in the Warmia and Mazuria lake districts in late September.

The Volvo Ocean Race is the world's longest yacht race, covering 37,000 nautical miles and five oceans, making it an endurance test for both vessels and crews. It starts in Alicante, Spain Oct. 11 and finishes in St. Petersburg, Russia June 27, 2009. The crews will be calling at 11 ports in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. The longest leg will be 12,000 nautical miles and the shortest "only" 400 miles. The race is usually held every four years.
