Volvo Ocean Race

The Volvo Ocean Race fleet is stopping in Cardiff on its race around the world – the first time in its history that it has done so. Following its departure from Newport Rhode Island in the USA, the first yachts are due to arrive 27/28 May.

To celebrate the two week stopover in Cardiff Bay (27 May – 10 June), Mermaid Quay will be hosting a fortnight of live music and magic busking plus a nightly sailing-theme lightshow (9.30pm).
