Dear respondent to our survey,

‘2011 Around Australia Ocean Race’ and ‘2011-2012 Around Australia Rally’ for Cruisers’.

Our recent on-line survey was a great success. Over 550 people participated from around Australia and many from around the world providing excellent feedback and firm preferences for the event format.

We welcome participants from outside Australia. You can choose a preferred port on the coastline of Australia from which to start and finish your circumnavigation. We will provide you assistance with local formalities and logistics.

Consultation with owners who register and reserve a slot in their event of choice will be an ongoing process as we work towards the final event features over the next 24 or so months.

We welcome questions and feedback and look forward to seeing you at the start-line.
