After the excitements of extremes of weather, broken masts, a hole in the hull and ocean surgery, the first two boats have arrived in Cape Town for the first Stopover of the 2011/12 Volvo Ocean Race. Telefonica, the winner of Leg 1, tops the overall rankings with Emirates Team New Zealand's CAMPER, second home in Cape Town, just two points behind. Follow the Race here

Schools Programme

The Auckland Stopover, in conjuction with the Voyager New Zealand Maritime Museum, has devised a free programme of learning for schools, comprehensively linked with the New Zealand Curriculum.

The programme is based on the Volvo Ocean Race's ocean conservation project Keep the Oceans Clean!, designed to communicate an ocean conservation message around the globe throughout the Race.

The Keep The Oceans Clean! Schools Programme gives students and their school communities real opportunities through the authentic context of the Volvo Ocean Race to:

  • discover their own coastline/waterways and the activities that take place on and in them
  • identify issues affecting their environment
  • take action for a sustainable future
  • discover that art can bring communities together

In addition, free guided visits to the Race Village are being offered to schools in the Auckland area and a competition for schools nationwide.

Sponsor update

The Auckland Stopover's commercial team, headed by Grant Calder, has been working hard over the past months setting up sponsorship packages.

French wine giant Pernod Rickard, under its Stoneleigh Latitude wines brand, was the first to sign up as a Port Partner.

“We’re proud to partner with the Auckland Stopover of this prestigious event. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our new Stoneleigh Latitude wines for the duration of the Stopover at the Race Village”, says Jamie Marfell, Stoneleigh winemaker.

During the Stopover, Latitude Island, named after Stoneleigh’s new label of premium wines, will feature a pop-up wine bar and entertainment hub, including an events stage, live music and large screens.

Further sponsorship announcements will be made in December.
