Overview

With more than 100 yachts competing from around the world, the 2010 Sail Banda yacht race promises to be bigger and better than ever. Sail Banda is an annual yacht race that takes competitors from Darwin, Australia through to the beautiful and remote Banda Islands. Along the way, participants and spectators will see all the splendid beauty Indonesia has to offer as yachts sail under a bright blue sky through crystal clear waters.  

Competitors will set off from Darwin, calling on various Indonesian ports before arriving at Banda island in Maluku (the Moluccas) on 27 July, where festivities will be held until 29 July. Then will then sail on to Ambon, to arrive on 1 August, where festivities to continue until 5 August.  

Sail Banda is becoming one of the highest profile sporting events in the nation. This year, sailors will encounter festivities along the way as the local people come out to support this exciting event.  Participants will enjoy the warmth of the hospitable Banda locals, who were among the first people in the archipelago to have contacts with foreigners.

This event is an ideal way to showcase the attractions this part of Indonesia has to offer.  It inspires an exchange with the rest of the world, in the form of tourism, trades, and investment.  

The seas surrounding the Banda Islands are the site of the famous Maluku sea gardens, home to bright coral reefs and a kaleidoscope of marine life which live in the crystal clear waters. This is why the Banda Islands is one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia for divers.
