'The Velux 5 Oceans yachts are moored at the Waterfront in Wellington - Velux 5 Oceans'    Genevieve Howard

The Velux 5 Oceans has arrived in Wellington for the start of the 5,800-nautical-mile-third leg from the capital to Punta del Este.

The Velux 5 Oceans yachts are moored at the Waterfront in Wellington - Velux 5 Oceans -  Genevieve Howard  
The four Eco 60 ocean racing yachts are on show at the Race Harbour, alongside the Race Expo at Shed 6 at Queens Wharf everyday until the race restart from 11am to 6pm.

The Expo showcases the official Velux 5 Oceans merchandise store, a photographic exhibition, the interactive Maersk Line Climate box and the Velux 5 Oceans grinder – which stimulates the winches used on the yachts.

The Port Nicholson Yacht Club is hosting a question and answer session with the four skippers – Brad Van Liew (USA), Chris Stanmore-Major (UK), Derek Hatfield (Canada) and Zbigniew Gutkowski (Poland) – on Wednesday evening. The event is for members only.

The prize giving ceremony for stage two will take place on Thursday at the Te Papa Museum.

Stage 3 of the race begins at 2.30pm on Sunday, February 6. Private yachts and small craft can take part in the send off.

Owners are asked to be considerate of the Velux 5 Oceans racers by keeping their speed down and giving the four Eco 60s room to make their way out of the harbour.

In Ocean Sprint 3, the Eco 60s will be heading further south, past Nemo Point – the most remote location on the Earth – and rounding Cape Horn to Punta del Este.
