Vanuatu to Mackay (V2M) 26/07/10
Competing yachts no longer require a race.
The three yachts that were expected to line up for the 2010 V2M have, in fact, decided to get to Mackay under their own auspices, possibly stopping at Chesterfield Reef en route. Turbo, Tevake ll and Samskara will now travel independently from Port Vila to Mackay. Australian Customs at Mackay have been informed and HF skeds will also be arranged for the vessels, as they make their own way back West. May they have a few days of glorious SE Trades to skoot them there pleasantly...
