This Saturday, you have the one-off opportunity to get up close and personal with the winners of Leg 6 of the Volvo Ocean Race – team AkzoNobel!

Get free team posters and merchandise signed by members of the crew including skipper – Simeon Tienpont (NED) and the team’s New Zealand sailors – Northland’s Brad Farrand and Justin Ferris.

Also in attendance will be team AkzoNobel’s three female sailors, Martine Grael (BRA), Cécile Laguette (FRA) and Emily Nagel (BER).

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 team AkzoNobel's team base and team merchandise can be purchased there for the crew signings (t-shirts, polos, caps, hoodies and jackets).
