Around Tasmania Ocean Race / 700 Nm / 16 Days / CAT 1 Race
Join the crew for a best of 7-leg Roaring 40’s Ocean Race around Australia’s southernmost island state of Tasmania. We’ll go head to head with two 70+ foot expedition yacht crews on Silver Fern and Salt Lines racing each other to claim the title of Around Tasmania Ocean Race Winner in this inaugural yacht race.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to undertake one of the world’s more adventurous and spectacular ocean race experiences. It is not for the fainthearted and the weather on the western and southern coasts can be extremely challenging. This race requires extensive preparation and considerable perseverance with the weather conditions we are likely to be dealt with en-route. The race route and recommended anchorages in between each leg, are based on careful research, professional meteorological advice and leveraging detailed local sailing knowledge.
Starting and finishing at Hobart, with 7 stopovers at memorable ports, islands and bays en-route, this challenge is as much about each leg of the race, as it is about each destination. The 14-day race plan ensures we have more than 50% available to go ashore and take in the natural beauty and iconic landmarks of Tasmania along the way.
