Today was the start of the Darwin to Dili yacht race.
This was the first yacht race from Australia to an international destination and began in 1973. It is run by the Cruising Yacht Association of the Northern Territory.
The race will take three days but of course the competitors spend most of the year doing things on their yachts to keep them in good nick.
I get dreadfully sea sick so this race is definitely not for me.
Would you like to be cruising on your own boat under tropical skies?
