It's back! After a ten year gap, Auckland, the world's premier sailing capital, will once again welcome the Volvo Open 70s fleet home as an official Stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race.

In March 2012 Auckland will stage the Leg 4 finish from Sanya in China and the start of Leg 5, which takes the fleet into the Southern Ocean once again, round the infamous Cape Horn and up to a finish and Stopover in Itajai, Brazil.

The Volvo Ocean Race is acknowledged as the greatest test of sailing prowess and human endeavour as the world’s fastest monohulls race a nine month marathon around the globe deep into the bleak latitudes of the Southern Ocean and through the world’s most hostile seas.

Each Stopover features an In-Port Race, with points counting towards the Volvo Ocean Race overall standings, and a Pro-Am Race.

The boats are due to arrive in Auckland on Thursday 8 March. The Pro-Am Race is scheduled for the Friday 16 March with the In-Port Race on Saturday 17 March. The Start of Leg 5 will take place on Sunday 18 March.

The last Auckland Stopover was a decade ago, during the 2001/2002 Race and there was a brief visit to New Zealand for the race in 2005/6 with a 48 hour pitstop in Wellington. The 2012 Stopover will be the eighth time the Race has come to Auckland.

Auckland Viaduct will be transformed into a vibrant Race Village for the Stopover with the new Viaduct Events Centre acting as Race HQ and a packed programme of entertainment on Latitude Island.

And, best of all, it's free!

Full details will be announced over the coming months.
