Having spent almost 3 months Sailing & Cruising in New Caledonia our 2019 Go East Rally participants have departed New Caledonia.
For some it was time to return to Australia but for the majority it was onwards to Vanuatu and what an adventure they are having !
Down Under Rally is excited to announce that we are on board with Zulu Waterways Cruising Guide.
Why do we find this exciting? Because we believe that the Zulu Waterway Cruising Guide can make cruising anywhere in the world a better experience for us all and it is 100% free to use.

2019 Go East Rally -Ordeal or Adventure ?
Before we departed on the voyage my parting words as organiser of the rally to the fleet were to quote Bob Bitchin who once said: “The difference between an adventure and an ordeal is attitude”
After a 10 day delay of due to unsuitable weather for the voyage we have got what looks to be a pretty good weather window for the 2019 Down Under Rally - GO EAST rally.
29 of the 32 vessels that are participants in the rally will depart the Southport Yacht Club tomorrow (Friday 17th May) at 07:00 and exit the Gold Coast Seaway at around 08:00.
