Welcome to AZAB 2015, the 2,400 mile ocean race, in the unlikely event of you sailing in a straight line!
Having enjoyed my first AZAB Race in 2011, I now find myself as Race Director of 2015.
Colin Drummond a founder /competitor of the AZAB in 1973 has passed the Race Director baton on to me and plans to join us Ponta Delgada in 2015.
It is an international ocean race for all comers, from experienced yachtsmen sailing 60 footers to the inexperienced guys like me with smallish boats. I had never raced my Moody 336 or sailed further than Brittany! The AZAB is open to single or two handed crews.
YES, you too can have the buzz of a friendly and supportive group of like-minded sailors.
Our new AZAB committee have been busy preparing the 2015 Notice of Race which is now available with a link to the entry form.
