Default Splash 2008

I am the organizer of the chairty yachting event "The Splash". in 2002 and 2005 we sailed a fleet of yachts (17 in 2002, 15 in 2005) from Fremantle to Darwin to raise funds for chairty projects, we have so far raised over $275,000.

In 2008 we are planning to Splash again, starting in May heading to all ports as far north as Exmouth, then to Christmas and Cocos Islands and on to complete a lap of the Indian Ocean, tentavice stopovers are Chagos, Seychelles, Rodrigues, Mauritius, Reunion, possibly Durban and back to Fremantle, a journey of around six months.

We will be raising money for Sail4Cancer, the charity that is supported by Cowes Week and also Geelong Week. The Splash is not a race or a rally, we advise the fleet of a date and time to arrive in each port and hold a sail past for the local community, yachts & crews dressed up to a theme. We then hold fund raising functions with the local communities to raise money to fund projects for their communities. If you have a yacht and are interested in participating please drop me an email at sail4cancer.wa@tpg.com.au and I will put you onto my email list for the event. We will have a Notice of Cruise document available late this year.

We are currently working with contacts in the locations that we will visit to arrange pens & moorings, visas, customs, reprovisioning, fuel water etc.
