The Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race and Rally 2013 – otherwise known as the Race to the Island of the Gods – gets underway on May 4, 2013.

A number of elite sailors, including veteran helmsmen Paul Eldrid, are expected to participate. Eldrid has chalked up a number of impressive sailing wins in a long sailing career including a world championship won in a sailing dinghy in Ireland as a youth.

Eldrid will sail “General Lee” – a yacht he owns with fellow yachtsman, Scott Disley. Also expected to join what could be a closely-contested open ocean race are Tony Mitchell’s “Sled” and Garry McNally’s “Black Betty.

Paul Eldrid was also a helmsman on Alan Brierty’s "Limit" that broke the course record in taking line honors in the last race, two years ago. That result displaced the previous record had been set in the inaugural race by W.A. sailing legend Rolly Tasker.

The Fremantle to Bali Race – also known as the “Beautiful Indonesia Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race" is organized by Fremantle Sailing Club in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.

The event was first run in 1981, and at 1,440 nautical miles long, is more than twice the distance of the famous Sydney to Hobart Race.
