Spice Islands Darwin Ambon Yacht Race

Darwin AmbonIn addition to our local races, DBCYA runs the annual Spice Islands Darwin Ambon Yacht Race (previously known as the Darwin to Ambon Yacht Race and Rally).

It is now 30+ years since the annual yacht race was established and many participants now have multiple races under their belts, some as many as 15 races or more.

2018 will mark 12 years of the Yacht Race after DBCYA restarted the event following the lapse from 1998.

The event continues to attract interest, and includes Racing and Cruising divisions. Local, national and international yachts compete in this popular race and enjoy the festivities when they arrive in Ambon.

NEW IN 2018: Bonus optional rally from Ambon to Banda Neira, perfect to keep the camaraderie alive as participants head home.
