Fremantle to Bali Race and Rally - Tokolosh VI to join race fleet


'Limit Leads the charge at the start of the 2011 Wonderful Indonesia Fremantle Bali Race'    Rick Steuart
Fremantle to Bali Race gets underway on Saturday 4 May 2013. A fleet of 33 boats is ready and set to fill their sails with the winds which will take them 1440 nautical miles north to the Benoa Harbour in Bali.

Race and Rally Chairman Terry Baker confirmed that the entries closed on 14th April 2013 for the 33 competent skippers and their crews who are all compliant in every aspect with the ISAF RRS rulings and special regulations.

Up to 65 entrants registered expressions of interest to participate in the race and rally however many have had to mothball their plans, for the next event scheduled in two years time.

The biennial Wonderful Indonesia Fremantle to Bali Race and Rally will set sail on 4 May 2013 and this year for the first time, has attracted an entry from one of the sailing world's super maxis Tokolosh VI which joins the race fleet for an all out assault on the race record of 6 days 5 hours set in 2011 by Alan Brierty's yacht Limit.

Spectators are encouraged to join the fun and festivities from 8.00am at the Fremantle Sailing Club where you can meet the sailors, see the boats and from 10am to 2pm, visit and enjoy the culinary delights of the Indonesian Bazaar exhibits and booths.

At 9am the Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency Mr Malcolm McCusker, Representative of Indonesia Ministry of Tourism & Creative Economy and Commodore Kucera will bid the fleet fair winds and inspect the yachts accompanied by the Fremantle Sailing Club band.

At 10am the flotilla parade of participating boats escorted by boats from the Fremantle Sailing Club VIP and spectator fleet will leave for the Fremantle Inner Harbour where they’ll commence their Parade of Sail before heading out to the start line off the North Mole.

The start gun for the race will be fired at 12 noon closely followed at 12.05pm by the rally gun which will offer a Sydney style spectacle of the flotilla heading to the first mark which they’ll round before hoisting their spinnakers (wind permitting) in a final salute to the spectators to fly up the WA coast.

Spectator boats are welcome however all spectator boats must monitor Channel 73 (VHF) and follow directions of the Marshall boats and should keep well clear of each turn mark. A diagram of the sailing area is available on the website.
Post the presentation celebrations at Aerowisata Sanur Beach Hotel on 18 May, the Beyond Bali Cruise organised by the Director of Rally Operations Ralph Newton, departs for a great adventure exploring the Indonesian archipelago with its more than 17,500 islands and welcoming people, cultures and exotic locations.

This year’s race theme is Fair Breezes, Warm Friendship - a powerful good will gesture between the people of Indonesia and Western Australia.
