A big thank you to our fans. Your support is truly a motivation. We ask for your support to reach our Patreon goal of $1000 to support race participation, training, equipment, coaching, editing and production costs to create and maintain Team Ghana's exclusive Patreon content as we prepare to become the first ever African sailor to participate in the Volvo Ocean Race.

Think 'Cool Runnings' of sailing.

The Volvo Ocean Race is a 40,00nm round-the-world yacht race requiring toughness and endurance over the 9 month course. Agbeli "Ag" Ameko, is taking on epic endurance challenges to build a base level of fitness and an endurance resume to earn a shot at the next Volvo Ocean Race in 2021. 

The 2018 season started with an unofficial (ahem....bandit) finish of the 50 mile Arches Ultra marathon in Moab and a July 7th finish in the mountains around Fairplay, Colorado for the Last Call 50 in 16hr30 for 4 UTMB points. 

This year's remaining challenges include 2 ultra-marathons to earn qualifying points for the 2019 Ultra Trail Mont Blanc 170km (10,000m+ vert).  The plan is to hit two races in one extended trip using United airline miles to save on travel costs and expenses. The races include 100km Estrelacor trail Ultra (Oct 7th) and 128km Marxa Dels Roures (Oct. 28) ultra race. 

The winter of 2018/2019 will see the training focus on building endurance with high altitude work, bulking up with weights, and time in the pool swimming.  The goal is to be on the start line of the 2019 UTMB (if selected in lottery) and represent Ghana which does not have a UTMB runner.

If we can reach goal of $2000 this will help cover some of Team Ghana’s training costs,  including gear, create Patreon shows exclusively for you, and help build more support to get into the Volvo Ocean Race in 2020. 

We will share a more personal side of Team Ghana training and share with you our love for Ghana and Africa. Along the way you will also get Volvo Ocean Race and Barcelona World race updates.

At a minimum, $1 per month could make a huge difference to the sustainability of the show. But if you can donate more, we will have some special incentives.
