The 2015 event is the sixth Darwin to Dili Yacht Rally of the modern era having recommenced after a 36 year hiatus following successful events in 1973 and 1974.
Once in Dili, the Rally yachts will be treated to a range of sightseeing tours and gala events, after which they are free to cruise through Timor-Leste’s pristine waters and enjoy world-class coral reefs and spectacular mountain scenery.
We are proud to be providing tracking solutions for the rally once again. All of the fleet will have a YB tracker insalled aboard which will wake up at a predetermined intervals to collect and send data through the Iridium satellite network. This data goes to YB tracking HQ and is then visualised on to our race player which is avaiable, along with more information on the rally, at sailtimorleste.org
