Auckland confirmed as Global Ocean Race Leg 2 stopover
Auckland has been confirmed as the halfway stopover port for the Global Ocean Race circumnavigation which starts at Southampton, UK, on Sunday 21 September 2014.

With nine teams from six countries currently entered in the event, the GOR Race Organisation is working closely with ATEED (Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development) and Waterfront Auckland to showcase the 30,000-mile round-the-world race. ATEED, the council controlled organisation responsible for the successful delivery of Rugby World Cup 2011, V8 Supercars ITM 400 Auckland, Volvo Ocean Race Stopover and over 32 events in Aucklandís Major Events programme, has been fundamental in securing Auckland as the GOR Leg 2 stopover.
