The Northern Territory Government is also proud to support the return of the Darwin Dili Yacht Rally on July 3 this year with the fleet sailing from Darwin to Dili. This is a resumption of the races that first ran for two years in 1973 and 1974. The Territory Government has provided $25,000 for this years event, which has already attracted interest from 12 yachts. As well as cementing ties between our jurisdictions it will help attract tourists to our region by showcasing the pristine marine environment. Mr Henderson will also call on the Australian Ambassador to Timor-Leste Peter Heyward and meet the Commander of the International Stabilisation Force Commodore Stuart Mayer RAN. He will also meet the head of the U-N Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste, Ms Ameerah Haq. Media contact: Geoff Fraser 0407 360256
