Volvo Ocean Race

The Volvo Ocean Race has provided the ultimate test of a team and a human adventure like no other since 1973. The 2017-18 edition will take the teams 45,000 nautical miles around the world, across four oceans, touching six continents and 12 landmark Host Cities.

For the first time in over a decade the Volvo Ocean Race is returning to Melbourne’s shores. Ensure you get down to the Docklands to experience the free interactive Race Village with on and off water entertainment and activities for all ages, the best food Melbourne has to offer, bars for summer refreshments and lots more.
