Auckland is back on the Volvo Ocean racing circuit after a ten year absence.

It'll be the stopover port at the end of the fourth leg from China, in March 2012.

Formerly the Whitbread Round the World Race, the Volvo Ocean Race takes place every three years with the next event starting from Spain in October next year and finishing with the fifth leg from Auckland to Brazil.
