Catch the competitors of the Volvo Ocean Race during their Melbourne stopover

The Volvo Ocean Race is an annual marathon sailing event featuring competitors from around the world. To win this race makes you something of a legend in sailing circles, but even landlubbers can enjoy the event.

The Volvo Ocean Race launches in Alicante, Spain on October 22 and will arrive in Melbourne for a week-long stopover on December 27. Get down to Melbourne's Race Village during the stopover week to experience on and off water activities, food, drinks and special events. Pencil Monday January 1 into your diaries: it'll be your one chance to go onboard the race yachts and discover what it's like to live and race on the vessels.
