Volvo Ocean Race to resume tomorrow

7:36 am on 17 March 2015

The Volvo Ocean yacht race will resume tomorrow with the challenging 5th leg through the Southern Ocean after a three-day delay caused by Cyclone Pam.

The round-the-world event has been delayed by the category five cyclone, which was the fiercest in the South Pacific for 40 years.

The nine-month race, staged over nine legs and nearly 40-thousand nautical miles, is due to finish on 27 June in Gothenburg, Sweden.
