Volvo Ocean Race Auckland In-Port Race

Team Sanya won today’s PRO AM Race, but we’re crossing our fingers for CAMPER with Emirates Team Zealand in the point-scoring in port race in Auckland on Saturday!

The six boat Volvo Ocean Race fleet face their biggest inshore challenge on Saturday when a huge spectator fleet will cram into the harbour to see if home heroes Camper can gain a longed-for victory in the Auckland In-Port Race (1400 local time, 0100 UTC).

There would be no better time or place for Camper with Emirates Team New Zealand to break that sequence.

Skipper Chris Nicholson said “It’s a massive race – it’s such a big one for us here. If the welcome we received back in on Sunday is an indication it should be a huge day all round and the racecourse looks great.”

“It’s been a huge effort from the whole team to get CAMPER prepared for the next leg, everyone has worked overtime to turn the boat around in time for the In Port racing this weekend. On the flip-side the sailors have been trying to recover from the last leg, before starting the punishing Southern Ocean stretch of the race.”
