Volvo Ocean Race with PUMA at the V&A Waterfront

Catch all the action of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 stopover with PUMA at the V&A Waterfront from 1 to 11 December. A pop-up store and entertainment zone called the PUMA Quad is located opposite the V&A Amphitheatre for the two week stopover, where PUMA will host daily activities. The PUMA Quad is open to the public and all activities are FREE!

Sailing prowess will be tested with grinding competitions taking place between 3 and 6pm on 1, 3 and 8 December as well as between 2 and 4pm on 10 and 11 December. The contestant with the best grinding results on competition days will win a R1 000 PUMA voucher. Two grand prizes of R10 000 in PUMA vouchers will be awarded to the contestants with the top grinding scores on 10 and 11 December.

On Friday, 9 December PUMA will host the PUMA Social Club presents All Hands on Deck party at Quay Four from 4pm to 1am.

While at the PUMA Quad, don't forget to try out KREECHR, a full-bodied and gorgeously malty, strong lager created in collaboration with CSG to celebrate PUMA's entry into the Volvo Ocean Race.
