The Programme

 

 

Auckland is known as the ”City of Sails” and is the sailing capital of New Zealand. The race first visited Auckland in 1977-78 and this edition will be the 10th time the city has hosted a stopover. The magnificent scenery and vibrant city life make Auckland a great place to enjoy typical Kiwi hospitality. in 2014-15, the race welcomed over 200,000 visitors, with a 125% economic return on investment for New Zealand (Source: F:Resh Info Co)

 

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

 

And, best of all, it's free for everyone!
