AUCKLAND WINS DOUBLE DOSE OF VOLVO OCEAN RACE
The City of Sails will again play host to sailing's greatest adventure after winning selection as a Host Port for both the 12th edition of the Race in 2014-15 and the 13th edition in 2016-17.
Auckland, a world renowned sailing capital, returned to the race route for the first time in 10 years in 2011-12 and staged a spectacular stopover at Auckland Viaduct, with spectators packing the Race Village and Waitemata Harbour.
"Sailing into Auckland after a 10-year gap felt like the Race was coming home," said Volvo Ocean Race CEO Knut Frostad.
