Images of Volvo Ocean Race- Sails Sunshine and Colour.

VOR Harbour shake down

Sails Sunshine and Colour were the feature on Auckland's Waitemata Harbour on Friday, and wind?

Well, not so much !

Lunchtime office workers were treated to riot of colour albeit moving at glacial speed, as the Volvo fleet used a harbour race with guests aboard to start pre race checks on gear and systems.

This, in stark contrast to the toughest , bleak sleigh ride of 6,705 nm through the southern ocean, rounding the horn up to Itajai in southern Brazil ending leg five of the VOR.
