Fremantle to Bali Rally off on 23rd April

Fremantle to Bali 2011
.. .
The Visit Indonesia Fremantle to Bali rally and racing fleets will commence their marathon adventure in just a few days.

To celebrate the event’s return and to farewell the sailors in style, the Fremantle Sailing Club would like to invite the public along to send off the adventurous crews and enjoy the Meet Indonesia Bazaar on Saturday 23 April, so if you are anywhere near Fremantle it's an opportunity too good to miss.


The Bazaar will commence at 9am with Balinese-themed family entertainment and music and delicious Balinese inspired cuisine available throughout the day. Participating Rally yachts will depart the club mid morning, ready to leave from North Mole at noon.

Three days later, the Visit Indonesia Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race sets sail (Tuesday 26 April). Racing yachts will depart Fremantle Harbour at 10:30am and cross North Mole at 12pm.

The Race record is currently held by WA yachting legend and event Patron Rolly Tasker who reached Bali in the record time of six days, 15 hours and 39 minutes in his yacht Siska. It will be exciting to see whether experience, the weather or technology win the race in 2011 when competitors cross the finish line in Benoa Harbour, Bali. A well-earned celebration and awards presentation will be held at Sanur Beach Hotel on 10 May.
