For those not staying on yachts there are a number of accommodation options.
Homestays in Amahusu
Why not make it a truly cultural experience and stay with a local family. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Located directly opposite the moorings and race office. There are a combination of twin and double rooms.
These are both located in Ambon City (approx 15kms from Amahusu).
For crew flying home there are 2 options.
- A charter flight direct from Ambon to Darwin with Hardy Aviation. This usually takes 2.5hrs and generally leaves on the Sunday after the presentation. There are also spaces on the inbound flight from Darwin to Ambon on the same day for crew who may be joining you in Ambon for the cruise home.
- Fly from Ambon to Ujang Pandang and then onto Denpasar. Jetstar & Air Asia both offer daily flights from Denpasar to Darwin at very affordable rates.
Fuel & drinking water will be arranged for yachts prior to outward clearances in Ambon. Further details will follow closer to the race start.
Moorings are available next to the finish line in Amahusu. You will be directed to an available mooring upon arrival prior to clearances.
