The biennial Wonderful Indonesia Fremantle to Bali race & Rally 2013 returns in May 2013 with the largest-ever field of competitive races and recreational sailors expected to participate.

First run in 1981, the 2013 event is targeted to attract a fleet of more than 50 ocean-going yachts in what is Western Australia’s only international yacht race covering a distance of 1,440 nautical miles.

Adopted as a theme for the 2013 race is “Fair Breezes, Warm Friendship” with organizers seeking to strengthen friendship and ties between the people of Indonesian and Australia.

The last running of the race and rally in 2011 saw 23 boats sail in the blue water event comprised of 8 racers and 15 rally boats.

Efforts are now underway across Australia to enlist boats and teams to be deploy to the historic port of Fremantle in time for May 4, 2013 sailing.

Western Australian Rolly Tasker won the first running of the race in 1981. In honor of the legendary yachtsmen, the state government of Western Australia has created a memorial trophy in Tasker’s memory. The Rolly Tasker Memorial Trophy for Line Honors will honor both the man and a record performance in the 1981 race that stood unmatched for 30 years until the 2011 running of the race.
