The Around French Island Catamaran Challenge


The 2022 and 2023 Around French Island Catamaran Challenge events (AFI) were an outstanding success, and the event to be held in 2024 is shaping up to be even bigger and better!

The event has been run as a fun event for catamaran sailors giving many local Westernport and Australia wide sailors the opportunity to participate in a unique race that circumnavigates the historic French Island with a very brief set of rules. The race averages approximately four to five hours in duration and covers about 70 kilometres, making this race a marathon. Repeat: it is a marathon, not a sprint! This type of course tests not only each entrant's skill level but also their endurance.
