Jesus Renedo/Volvo Ocean Race

Volvo Ocean Race in Aarhus

The expected arrival time is between 12 am and 6 pm.

While we wait for the VO65s to appear there is plenty to keep everyone entertained, e.g.

Big Screen
The Big Screen at Havnepladsen will show the Volvo Ocean Race fleet entry into the port of Aarhus and the mark rounding.

Volvo Ocean Race partner, Cobham SATCOM, that supplies the radio and satellite communications to the fleet that enables the crew to send live images from on board, will be on shore to demonstrate their latest technology and equipment.

The Volvo pavilion
In Volvo's pavilion at Havnepladsen you can:

  • Try to hoist the sail on a Volvo Ocean Race boat as quick as possible
  • Get information about the construction of a Volvo Ocean Race boat
  • Try to steer the boat in high lake
  • Experience a 1:1 copy of the Volvo Ocean Race trophy

DR Football Fan zone
Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) has established a fan zone at Havnepladsen during the entire World Cup in Football. On the same day as the seven VO65s arrive at the port of Aarhus, DR shows three of the World Cup championships in Russia, on a big screen here.
