ORCV Melbourne to Vanuatu (M2V on 06/07/14)
Australia's longest Category One race is on.
The 2014 M2V has been announced, which will be the third incarnation of this classic Pacific jaunt.
So you've had a read of the articles about the 2010 M2V. Perhaps you've heard the stories from those who went in 2006? Been at the recent Long Distance Seminars even? Well. All we can say, is start preparing! He of the Countdown Timer tells me it is just 1366 days (as of the day of posting - 09/10/10) and we all know how quickly they slide by!
One boat keen to get to Vanuatu is Gusto, who were the first to put their name down in the EOI - on the very same day it went online!!! They ran out of time to get ready for the 2010 M2V, so certainly have unfinished business with the race, especially when they saw Scarlet Runner enjoying those SE Trades for a day and half. They were also completely devastated for the Runner when she had to withdraw with her electrical issues. Brian and Rob were part of the contingent that flew to Vanuatu, to show support for our fleet and the destination country, despite their yachts not making it.
