Sail Komodo is scheduled to take place in September 2013.

Sail Komodo, an annual international maritime event that takes place in Labuan Bajo, West Manggarai, is part of the government’s efforts to promote NTT as a world tourist destination.
 
 
Coordinating People’s Welfare Minister Agung Laksono said on Monday that Sail Komodo 2013 would help boost tourism in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), particularly in Komodo Island.
 
The government allocated Rp 1.5 billion (US$154,687) in 2012 to promote the event.
 
The Komodo National Park which includes Komodo, Rinca and Padar islands in West Manggarai regency, NTT, is home to Komodo dragons(Varanus komodoensis). The Komodo National Park was named a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site in 1991.
 
Sail Komodo is one of the country’s annual maritime events which include Sail Bunaken, Sail Morotai and Sail Wakatobi
 
NTT Governor Frans Lebu Raya said in a recent statement that the highlight of Sail Komodo would be from Sept.7 to 15 this year.(ebf)

    Beautiful beaches, prehistorical animal, and sailing competition are the awesome combination. The allocation budget is quiet high but it means the government really takes this as a serious event. Good luck!
