This Saturday, you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Volvo Ocean Race Dongfeng Race Team.

Currently placed 2nd overall, this team has made excellent progress both in the previous six legs as well as the In-Port races.

Come down to the race village, and meet one of New Zealand’s unsung superior sailors Nelson’s Daryl Wislang and get team posters and merchandise signed by him and two of his legendary team members, Chen Jinhao ‘Horace’ and Liu Xue ‘Black’.

Daryl Wislang (NZL), a Volvo Ocean Race winner in 2014-15, returns to the race for a fourth time – and is delighted that his decade-long ‘love affair’ with the Volvo Ocean Race is set to continue. He joins up with Dongfeng Race Team seeking a second consecutive win.

This is an amazing opportunity to meet these inspiring and dedicated sailors and to get some merchandise signed by them as well as the chance to ask them what it takes to compete in the 2017-18 edition of the race, which lasts for eight months, covers over 83,000 kilometres (45,000 nautical miles), crosses four oceans, stops in 12 major cities and touches six continents!

The event will be held at Dongfeng's team base and team merchandise can be purchased there for the crew signings (t-shirts, polos, caps, hoodies and jackets).
