2018 Round the Islands Race

2018 Round the Islands Race


2018 sees the return of the Round the Islands Race, which will be conducted on the waters of Darwin Harbour, Van Diemens Gulf and the Arafura Sea.

Owners of eligible yachts are invited to submit an expression of interest.

The race is organised and conducted by the Darwin Sailing Club Inc.

Scheduled to start at 0945 on June 9th 2018, this 273nm race has been an icon of NT offshore sailing since its inception after the cancellation of the 1975 Darwin - Dili race due to the instability in East Timor at that time.

With variations in wind and current to face as well as some challenging navigational issues, many consider this one of the best tests in offshore racing in Australia.
