Now in its fourth year, this engineless, unsupported adventure race has received national media attention and is already a ‘bucket list’ event for the maritime world. "There's no race that I'm aware of that is this diverse and this demanding." - Experienced racer Graeme Esarey, Team Elsie Piddock, first place in the inaugural R2AK "Adventure is alive and well...Tapping into that age-old desire to sail over the horizon, the race captured our imagination. The R2AK was for the adventurer or the adventurer at heart and they came out of the woodwork to compete in and follow the race." - Mark Aberle, Three Sheets NW
