Multihull Solutions continues to expand its ventures in the Asia Pacific region with the announcement of its major sponsorship of the Sail 2 Indonesia Cruising Rally.
The rally is a four-month adventure that sees a large contingent of power and sail monohulls and multihulls cruise from Cairns, through Indonesia, and onto to the final festival in Tanjung Pinang on the island of Bintang, just south of Singapore and Malaysia.
Commencing in early July and finishing in mid-November, the 2015 rally already has more than 50 confirmed participants, and entries are now flooding in for the 2016 event. The rally is the ultimate event for those considering cruising Asia Pacific in 2016, providing outstanding support and a wonderful camaraderie with like-minded adventurers.
Throughout the course of the rally, the cruisers will explore a variety of exotic anchorages through the Spice Islands, Banda Islands, Flores Island, and the Lingga archipelago, as well as visiting the famous islands of Lombok, Bali and Borneo.
The rally delivers an incomparable experience with the destinations renowned for their sparkling white beaches, world-class diving, sea gypsies, komodo dragons, orang-utans, proboscis monkeys, stunning waterfalls, untouched jungle grottos, rich culture and generous local hospitality.
The Sail 2 Indonesia Rally is run by Island Cruising Regattas Ltd, in conjunction with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and the Cairns Cruising Yacht Squadron. The event is organised by the Island Cruising Association (ICA) who are delighted to welcome Multihull Solutions onboard as official naming sponsor.
ICA director John Martin said that Multihull Solutions’ support is a great boost for the event. “Multihull Solutions is an iconic brand in the Australasian region, and we are delighted to have them join us as the rally continues to grow into one of the region’s major cruising events,” John said. “Multihulls have become increasingly popular over recent years and are a major component in the 2015 and 2016 rally, accounting for almost half of the current confirmed registrations. Multihull Solutions support is a real bonus for us and all the participants.”
Multihull Solutions Asia general manager Andrew de Bruin said the company was also excited to become involved in the popular event. “The Sail 2 Indonesia Rally is the perfect way to truly experience the majesty of this incredible cruising region, and multihulls are the ideal vessel to enjoy this adventure,” Andrew said. “We are passionate about helping more cruisers not only discover these breathtaking cruising grounds, but also learn the enormous advantages that today’s multihulls offer for cruisers who want the best in performance, space, comfort, safety and style.”
Both power and sail multihulls and monohulls are welcome to enter, although there are only limited spaces left and interested cruisers are urged to register soon.
