Setouchi Yacht Rally is organized and managed by Chokokai, an association of long distance voyagers in Japan: http://cruisingjapan.org/

The first Setouchi Rally too place in the Autumn of 2013. It has since been repeated annually in the Seto Inalnd Sea, with both foreign and Japanese boats. In 2016 the rally was scheduled to run in May, however was cancelled at the beginning of April due to lack of participants.

Keen to run another successful rally in 2017, Chokokai have already started planning following the preliminary announcement in June. This rally offers cruising sailors a great opportunity to see a little-visited country with expert guides, meet local sailors and discover the highlights without having to deal with all the red tape.

The Rally 2017 will be held in May 2017 for one or two weeks in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan. It will be a small rally, with between 10 and 15 boats taking part. The itinerary and ports of call are still to be determined, as are the additional cultural activities and rally fee.

To find out details of previous rallys see this report.

At this stage, the organisers are keen to know of any cruising sailors who might be interested in taking part, either in 2017 or 2018.

E-mail your interest to info@chokokai.or.jp and the planning team will keep you updated as planning progresses. There is no obligation to take part by contacting the rally organisers, it is simply an expression of interest.

The official announcement of the Setouchi Rally 2017 will take place in early December 2016, with detailed schedules and the launch of the application website.
