ENJOY THE PARTY

COME AND CELEBRATE 14-18 JUNE 2018 – FREE ADMISSION EVERY DAY!

In June 2018 Gothenburg has the honour of welcoming competitors in the Volvo Ocean Race to the final stopover before crossing the start line to The Hauge. The boats are expected to arrive around the 14-15 June and on the 21 June the race of the final leg toward the finish line begins, after 45,000 nautical miles around the planet.

In Gothenburg there will be a big sailing party, with free entrance so that everyone can join in the celebrations. The festivities will involve an In-Port Race right at the entrance to the Gothenburg harbour, giving everyone a ringside view of the penultimate sprint. The party will continue in the Race Village in Frihamnen, the heart of Gothenburg harbour, where the Volvo Ocean 65 boats will berth.

There will be something for everyone: giant screens with direct broadcasts of the Pro-Am Race and In-Port Race, stage entertainment, exhibitions, restaurants, bars, a large market place and opportunities to try out various activities. You can get here easily by foot, bike or public transport. The Race Village will be open every day from 14 to 21 June. Welcome!

THE EVENT VENUE - RACE VILLAGE

The event venue Race Village is located at Södra Frihamnspiren, at the heart of Gothenburg harbour. This is a unique, 93.000 m2 event venue. The venue is known to many as the “Banana Pier”, famous for events such as the STCC City Race and the Metal Town music festival, as well as for The Docks club. During the week-long event, the venue will feature a grandstand and a picnic area which will afford spectators a front-row view of the harbour race.

Admission to the Race Village is free on all the days of the event.

HOW TO GET THERE

The event venue Race Village is situated at Södra Frihamnspiren, 900 meters from Gothenburg Central Station. It is easily accessed on foot or by bicycle. We recommend that visitors use public transport, since there is only limited space for private vehicles or boats. More information to come during 2018.
