VOLVO Ocean Race Auckland stopover

After a ten year gap, Auckland, the world's premier sailing capital, has once again welcomed the Volvo Open 70s fleet home as an official stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race.


The Volvo Ocean Race is acknowledged as the greatest test of sailing prowess and human endeavour as the world’s fastest monohulls race a nine month marathon around the globe deep into the bleak latitudes of the Southern Ocean and through the world’s most hostile seas.


Visit the stylish Peroni Bar & Courtyard on Te Wero Island, Eastern Viaduct Harbour to watch the action of the Volvo Ocean Race unfold on the big screen and soak up the atmosphere. Peroni are also hosting the following events:


Thursday 15th of March – there will be a free public screening of Martin Scorsese’s Italian mobster classic ‘Goodfellas’, with complimentary popcorn for the first 1000 guests.

Saturday 17th of March – everyone who purchases a Peroni from the Peroni Pop-Up Bar will receive a free slice of wood-fired pizza from the Woodfired Pizza Company. This is in conjunction with the In-Port Race happening that day.

Sunday 18th of March –  the public can enjoy complimentary gelato courtesy of Peroni which will be served in the Peroni Pop-Up Bar from 12pm-3pm to celebrate the Start of Leg 5 of the Volvo Ocean Race.
