AZAB 2019

Welcome to the MailASail Azores and Back (AZAB) Yacht Race. Planning is now under way for the 2023 race and announcements will be made early in 2020.

The AZAB is a 2,400 mile ocean yacht race, in the unlikely event of you sailing in a straight line!

The AZAB is an international ocean race for all comers, from experienced racers sailing high-performance boats, to local cruisers in need of a challenge.  The notice of race is now online and we’re accepting expressions of interest, so we hope that you too will join us on this epic adventure.

The race left Falmouth on the 1st June 2019, and competitors raced either single or double handed to Ponta Delgada on São Miguel Island, one of the nine Azores Archipelago Islands that lie in the Eastern Atlantic, before turning around and racing back to Falmouth.
