August 2023 race results.

With at times challenging weather conditions, and a quick detour to a nearby island for one vessel stricken with multiple seasickness, all vessels navigated north over a period of days and arrived safely to be greeted by warm Indonesian hospitality. Skippers and crew enjoyed the local attractions and entertainment on offer and the closing race presentation event was well attended with local dignitaries and guests, the Ambon Sailing Community and race participants and officials.

A big thank you to the Darwin Ambon Community for making our participants feel very welcome and to Darwin City Council and Inpex for their sponsorship support.

Race Record : The current record is held by Antipodes a Santa Cruz 72 from Hong Kong, owned by Geoff Hill. Antipodes claimed the record of 52hrs 29mins in 2016 beating the previous record by 1hr 20mins held by the catamaran ZUMA, skippered by Darwin local John Punch, since 1998.

History: Darwin yachtsmen have played a pivotal role in developing the international yachting events scene in Australia. In 1973 they organised the first race to a foreign port, the Darwin to Dili Yacht Race. While this pioneering event attracted just six entries, it began a great tradition of sailing events departing Darwin for ports to our north.

The Darwin Dili Race of 1974 saw the fleet grow to 24, and 60 entries were received for the 1975 race. Sadly, the 1975 race had to be called off due to political unrest in East Timor. The skippers decided, instead, to race anti-clockwise around Bathurst and Melville Islands to the north of Darwin. This event, over 360 miles, proved to be a searching test of sailing and navigating skills – the Round the Islands Yacht Race was born.

A chance visit to Ambon in the Spice Islands by a Darwin radio technician in 1976 was the spark that led to the first Darwin to Ambon Yacht Race later that year. The 600 mile downwind race attracted six yachts in its inaugural year. For months afterwards, conversation amongst returning yachties was dominated by stories of “champagne sailing”, overwhelming hospitality, lovely friendly people, the scenic beauty, the cultural diversity, the food….. Clearly this would become an annual event not to be missed!

Cruising Yacht Association of NT (CYANT) ran a highly successful race for many years.  Entries steadily increased over the years as the event’s reputation spread and its tradition grew. Entrants began to come from further and further afield. International skippers began to use Ambon as a starting point to visit some of the 17,400 islands of the Indonesian Archipelago. Some sailed north to Manado and onto the Raja Muda Selangor Regatta in Malaysia. Others headed southwest to the amazing Buton Passage and then on to visit the famous Komodo Dragons en-route to Macassar or Bali and beyond. Whilst others take the scenic route home to Darwin via the Banda & Tanimbar Islands.

A big factor in the growing popularity of the race was related to the excellent facilities Darwin offered for yachts and their crews. For many, Darwin would be the last access to western comforts and familiar language for many months.

Pre-race hype and functions also grew over the years, leading to a festival atmosphere and a range of social activities catering to all tastes. Skippers and crews became acquainted and many new alliances and friendships were formed, both within the fleet and with the wider sailing community.

The race start grew from the low key departure of the original race fleet to a festival atmosphere attracting large crowds to many of Darwin Harbour’s cliff-top and beachside vantage points. The Royal Australian Navy also entered the spirit providing a start line firing of the Bofor in the finest nautical tradition. A substantial fleet of spectator craft added colour and excitement to the spectacle, along with the helicopters and light planes associated with the extensive media coverage.

Daily position reports along with commentary on weather and sea conditions were soon being published and broadcast. The media coverage served two purposes – family and friends were able to follow the fortunes of their favourites, and wider community interest in the race grew as people learned more about it.

The first post script to this delightful story is sadly, again, related to regional political instability. By 1998, annual race entries had reached almost 100. Political instability in Ambon forced the cancellation of the 1999 race, and it was not held for the next 8 years.

A deputation from Ambon visited Darwin in April 2006 with a view to getting the event restarted. A delegation from DBCYA visited Ambon shortly thereafter and returned to the Club advising that in their opinion the situation in Ambon was ready to accept International yachts and crews.  Dinah Beach Cruising Yacht Association Inc. re-introduced the inaugural DBCYA Darwin to Ambon Yacht Race in 2007.

In 2017 the race name was changed to reflect a new beginning as DBCYA works with the local Ambon Sailing Community to grow the race into the future.  For the first time in 20 years there will be a local Ambon crew competing in the race which we hope will continue for many years to come.

Cruising fleet sets sail for Indonesia

The annual Sail Indonesia Rally and sister Darwin Ambon Race are now underway, with fleets battling light winds on the 600nm or so to Indonesia.

Progress reports on the 120 yachts in the Sail Indonesia Rally were unavailable, but positions for the eight yachts in the Darwn Ambon Race are being updated when possible.

As of 0800 hrs today, the yacht 7609 was at 05 54 128 53, Cruise Missile 04 14 128 05, Kishka 05 57 128 41, and Lightfoot 05 49 128 41. Pandora's position at 1600 hrs yesterday was 08 48 129 14. The other yachts had not yet been heard from.

“The fleet are slowly making their way to Ambon with very light wind,” a race official said on the Darwin Ambon website.

“Cruise Missile has smashed their spinnaker pole. However, they have made temporary repairs to enable John Punch and Wayne Huxley to have a competition to see who can get the furthest under spinnaker in an hour. Mai Tai is just behind Cruise Missile and they are both in sight orf Ambon.

 “There is also a dual going on between Lightfoot and Kishka. Kishka is catching Lightfoot on the straight runs. However, they are losing them on the tacks. Interesting to know how the fleet keep themselves amused in light winds!”

Sail Indonesia yachts have the choice of two first ports of call in Indoneisa: Ambon or Saumlaki, 290nm north of darwin.

Many yachts from both events are expected to do the follow-on Sail Bunaken event.

There was no mention on either website about concerns over safety in Indonesia following the Jakarta bombings, but on the Sail Indonesia website there was a warning about taking precautions to prevent swine-flu spreading.

the "Western Passage Rally" visits the cultural and geographical differences of the islands of Timor, Alor, Flores, Sulawesi, Bali, Java and Borneo. Then on to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand and onwards to wherever.





Although the yachts are representing a group entering a Rally , They have come from far off places and will continue their cruises after the rally ends officially in Singapore ( or thereabouts) The models and lengths also give us a good idea of what 2008 regards as suitable sailboats to fulfil dreams. (Only one boat is not a sailboat - however, the Diesel Duck is a good boat to go cruising

A scan of the above 2 fleets shows an amazing diversity in the both the builders

and their models. Only the Beneteau 38 in the monos and the Granger 42 in the catamarans do we find boats of the same model - (They are probably of different years !!!!!!) It does illustrate the fact that sailors and cruisers are of independent minds.

, many will cruise up the Malacca Strait visiting the west coast of Malaysia and continue to Thailand's cruising waters. Others will may tack their way up the N.W coast of Borneo (wind on the nose). Those Australians who are not continuing cruising in S.E. Asian waters will be heading back to Australia during November and early December (arriving in time for Christmas)
