2018 Melbourne to Osaka

First run in 1987 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Port of Osaka the race will be run for the 8th time in 2018 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Melbourne Osaka Sister-City Relationship. The race is a challenging long-distance, short-handed racing event that provides a proving ground for true seamanship and encourages the development of suitably seaworthy yachts, appropriate gear, supplies, and techniques for short-handed passage under sail.
