The Volvo Ocean Race fleet got underway on Port Phillip, Melbourne for the start of Leg 4 to Hong Kong with a few incidents.

AkzoNobel exited the start flying a red protest flag after having an issue with Dongfeng Race Team.

Sailing in a beautiful Port Phillip seabreeze the fleet made short work of the upwind course to the entrance, where they turned left and headed for the Tasman Sea and the 5,400nm leg to Hong Kong.
