Welcome to our website - Sail Indonesia now in its fifteenth year is our annual yacht rally that has run every year since 2000.
Our rally departs from Darwin on the last Saturday of July every year and your departure from Darwin is the beginning of a three month program of linked events across Indonesia. These events are supported by the Indonesian Central Government as well as the Local Government Centers at the destinations you will visit as you cross the country. Sail Indonesia is managed using the internet and email and this English language web site is to promote, co-ordinate and manage our rally.
Always check our NEWS page for the latest information and updates, you can join us on Facebook.
Almost 1000 yachts have joined our rally across Indonesia during the past fourteen years, please see our Stories page where you will find links to many yacht web sites, blogs, guides, diaries and accounts written by some of these our participants from previous years.

During the three months following your departure from Darwin all participants are invited to participate in a linked series of Events and Cultural Festivals at the different stopovers across the country on the islands of Timor, Banda, Lembata, Wakatobi, Flores, Sulawesi, Bali, Java, Borneo, Belitung and finally on to Batam or Bintan just south of Singapore.
Under the managemant of the Indonesian Sail Tourism Association ASWINDO led by Dr Aji Sularso you will be able to experience different peoples and their cultures, different lifestyles, different arts, different crafts, wonderful foods and of course different languages. You are welcome to participate in all events and stopovers after your first port of entry in Kupang, as the Indonesia Organising Committee at each port will provide you with hospitality, reception and festivities. You do not have to participate in all the events on our rally as there will simply not be enough time. After you arrive in your first port you can then join the events that suit your schedule. You will be able to see some of the more remote, interesting and less developed parts of Indonesia as you cross the country often away from the well worn tourist areas.
Singapore is a wonderful stopover, ideal for all services, transfers and a break, after your long voyage across Indonesia. Singapore is home to Raffles Marina, a full-fledged country club, offering a first class range of all facilities and services. Located at the west end of Singapore, away from the hustle and bustle of city, you can immerse yourself in our unique nautical surroundings.
Raffles Marina provides easy access to Singapore’s best sailing and cruising waters, a full service boat repair yard and dry stack storage for powered boats. Protected by a solid breakwater, it offers the comfort of a safe and calm stay. Shore power services, freshwater supply and Wireless Internet are also available around the clock. Sea view sunsets, alfresco dining or taking a dip in the landscaped tropical pool are just a few of the treats in store for visitors. Raffles Marina welcomes you!
Sail Malaysia - Sail Indonesia is in partnership with Sail Malaysia and after our Sail Indonesia program across Indonesia ends at the end of October you can then take some time out and sail on to Singapore and Malaysia. Sail Malaysia begins from Danga Bay located just north of Singapore and sails up the west coast of Malaysia again in a series of linked events finishing at the island of Langkawi in the second week of December.
There will be an additional entry fee for the Sail Malaysia event and again you are able to make your own way up the coast of Malaysia and participate in the stopovers that suits you schedule.
