The Visit Indonesia Fremantle to Bali rally and racing fleets will commence their marathon adventure in just a few days.

To celebrate the event's return and to farewell the sailors in style, the Fremantle Sailing Club is inviting the public along to send off the adventurous crews and enjoy the Meet Indonesia Bazaar on Saturday 23 April.

The Bazaar will commence at 9am with Balinese-themed family entertainment and music and delicious Balinese inspired cuisine available throughout the day. Members of the Australian-Indonesian Trade, Tourism and Investment Association (AITTIA) will also be on hand to discuss business opportunities for interested parties.

Participating Rally yachts will depart the club 11.00-11.30am, ready to cross the start line just off North Mole, Fremantle at noon.

Three days later, on Tuesday 26 April, the yachts entered in the Visit Indonesia Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race set sail, crossing a start line off North Mole at midday. The public will then be able to follow the race as the yachts as they stay close to the shore until they reach a marker buoy just off Cottesloe Beach, where they will turn and head out to sea. Next stop ­ Bali!

The Race record is currently held by WA yachting legend and event Patron Rolly Tasker who reached Bali in the record time of six days, 15 hours and 39 minutes in his yacht Siska. It will be exciting to see whether experience, the weather or technology win the race in 2011 when competitors cross the finish line in Benoa Harbour, Bali.

A well-earned celebration and awards presentation, hosted by Garuda Indonesia, will be held at Sanur Beach Hotel on 10 May.
