Volvo Ocean race resumes tonight

4:04 pm on 22 January 2012

The Volvo Ocean race resumes tonight with the 6 boats leaving the Maldives in the Indian Ocean heading for Sanya in China.

It is the second stage of leg three after the boats were shipped from the UAE to the Maldives to avoid pirates operating out of Somalia.

Team New Zealand's boat Camper is in second place overall behind Telefonica of Spain.

It will be the first time in a month that the entire fleet will compete together following damage to a couple of boats.
