The Royal Bali Yacht Club (R.B.Y.C.) has finally received its official letter of accreditation from the Indonesian Sailing Federation (PORLASI) , making it now a fully-fledged member of Indonesia's sailing fraternity.
Based at Bali's Benoa Harbor, the R.B.Y.C. is a non-profit grouping of yacht owners and sailing enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the sport of sailing and Indonesia as a yachting destination. With a charter membership of 35, the R.B.Y.C. is organizing local yachting events, social gatherings, charity events, as well as acting as sponsoring organizers of the Darwin-Bali Yacht Race.
That race will start from Darwin on 27 July and conclude with a gala reception hosted by the Club on 7 August.
In order to instill young Indonesians with a love of the sport of sailing, the R.B.Y.C. will sponsor a two-day local yacht rally on 27 July in which young Indonesian sailing athletes will be taken on club yachts for a round trip rally to Padangbai beach.
Club Commodore Martin Moore and Vice-Commodore Sue Allison encourage new members, with or without boats, to join the newly recognized R.B.Y.C.. Additional information is available by telephoning ++62 - (0)8123 956 173 or via the e-mail link provided.
