Volvo World Race Boats Depart Auckland Today

After a great week of festivity including thrilling in port races the Volvo  fleet will sail at 1400 from Auckland today .
Camper winning the in port races yesterday has has given all kiwi yachting supporters some much need confidence that our boat is up to it .
The weather forecast for the next few days sailing down Aotearoa East coast is for storms and heavy seas.the boats are not built for comforts and all crews will find this leg thru the roaring forties.around the horn and on to Brazil challenging . Whether Camper will come in and win this leg well wait to see . Confidence in the design is lacking and the real comfort we have is that we have the  most competent  crew . Good luck boys.
