Volvo Ocean Race – Melbourne Race Village

The extreme Volvo Ocean Race is coming to Melbourne over the Christmas/New Year’s period this year! Competitors, their families, tourists and locals alike will converge on Docklands during this time.

The Volvo Ocean Race in conjunction with Mayo&Calder will create a fantastic race village and dockside experience complete with bars, restaurants, entertainment, cool gadgets, try sailing areas and of course, the Volvo 65 yachts! For all of this to happen we will need volunteers!

Volunteers, or Port Crew as we like to call them are a vital part of this event! Our stopover is a week long and we will be running 2 shifts per day in order to run all of the areas and activities smoothly. We have heaps of options available from helping look after the Port Crew, to Try Sailing, hospitality, media or general public relations to help answer questions and guide visitors, there is something for everyone! If you can give weekends, mornings, pre-stopover, post-stopover, before or after work or you can even take time off to help out, we would love to have you! All we ask is that you are over 16 years of age and physically able.

Port Crew will be remunerated with a top-of-the-line Musto uniform which will be yours to keep. The more days you volunteer, the more merch you get! 2 days gets you a t-shirt and a cap, 4 days will receive 2 t-shirts, a cap and a jacket, 6 or more days will get a cap, 2 t-shirts, a jacket and a fleece. You will also be fed and watered during your shift! We can’t have our volunteers going hungry or thirsty! Plus you get to be a part of the incredible event and make new friends.

If you’re interested in becoming a member of our Port Crew team you can register directly using the link below. Or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email.

I look forward to hearing from you.
