Darwin to Dili Race

The first international offshore ocean yacht race organised from Australia was the Darwin to Dili Race. At that time, Dili was the capital of Portuguese (East) Timor, a Portuguese colony. This race only took place for two years before political unrest interrupted the event. See History section.
