Volvo ambassadors Kathryn Wilson and Barkers’ Jade Harris have been following the Volvo Ocean Race since it departed Alicante, Spain, in October last year.

As well as presenting a special ‘Long Lunch’ at the Volvo Pavilion on March 1, they are looking forward to immersing themselves in some of what Auckland has on offer – both on and off the water.

Here are their insider tips on to what to see and do, and how to do it all with style.

I'll be wearing:
The best thing about 'winter weather' arriving is being able to wear new season pieces from my favourite NZ designers! I have a beautiful outfit from Juliette Hogan that will work perfectly with the nautical theme of the Volvo Ocean Race.

What I’m looking forward to:
We are proud to be affiliated with a major event that celebrates an incredible sport in NZ and brings people out to the viaduct/CBD for fashion, food and entertainment.

I’m most excited by:
Getting out on the water to see the action close up

I won’t leave home without:
The Dermalogica Perfect Primer SPF for under my makeup. While Coola make-up setting spray can be applied over makeup for an additional SPF30.

I’m most excited by:
You can’t go past the competition on the water, amazing to see the world’s best battle it out

I don’t want to miss seeing:
The Globe – it is the sustainability centre for the race and highlights the ocean’s pollution issues which is something that I think people need to be more aware of.

Viaduct Harbour is perfect for:
Picking a spot in the sun, sipping on some Champagne and getting in some good people watching.

I’ll be wearing:
My oversized Barkers linen shirt, perfect in the hot summer sun.

I won’t leave home without:
Skin by Eco Store – a light moisturiser to prep for the heat and sunblock.
