There is a history of the Whitbread Race (now called the Volvo Ocean Race) out there somewhere... but it was produced some time ago.

I did not know how exciting all this is.
Yes, it is quite a bit better than Whitney Houston, alive or dead.
Be sure to dig in and learn about the Vendee Globe solo around the world ocean race, it is run every four years only so your timing is perfect. The 2012 edition starts on November 10. There will be plenty of coverage at Sailing Anarchy, which is a good place to check in, as much of the other coverage is in French only.
The VG is the BEST event in all of sailing.

History of the Volvo Ocean Race (1 x 52min)
From the first race in 1973, the Volvo Ocean Race has delivered the most exciting racing and most compelling human stories of adventure for
nearly 40 years. From record-setting to daring rescues, the Volvo Ocean Race has won the reputation as the world’s toughest yachting challenge.
Featuring un-precedented onboard footage from the yachts themselves in the most punishing of conditions to contributions from some of the
race’s greatest competitors like Sir Robin Knox Johnston, Grant Dalton and Paul Cayard, The Volvo Ocean Race – The Documentary is the definitive
story of this epic race.
Here is the 52 min "History of the VOR" I think
Well now I have to go and watch it again tonight.
