Pacific Rallies 2022 from New Zealand

by Island Cruising NZ 19 Dec 2021 21:14 NZDT

Registrations will shortly open for New Zealand rallies to the Pacific for 2022. We are just waiting on a couple of final prices, dates and details to come through. Drop me a line if you'd like to be the first to know.

We will have a couple of options:

Rally to New Caledonia

Departing in May, cruise to New Caledonia where you'll arrive in time to participate in the racing or cruising division of the Groupama Round New Caledonia Yacht Race. Racers will be welcomed by a local 'Godfather' to help with their check-in and race preparations. From there you can enjoy cruising this incredible destination, including the stunning Isle of Pines and the Loyalty Island Group, and returning to NZ in September.

If Vanuatu opens, then you'll have the option of adding on a leg there too.

Rally to Fiji & New Caledonia

Departing in May, cruise to Fiji, where we hope to have the option of checking in at the incredible Lau Group where you can enjoy exploring this stunning part of the world, making your way up to Musket Cove for Fiji Regatta Week.

From there, we'll sail to New Caledonia, before heading back to NZ in October. There will hopefully also be the option of adding a stop in Vanuatu if it opens.

Fiji Regatta Week

If you are just keen to sail up for the Fiji Regatta, we can help with that too. Let us know if you are interested and we can put something together.

Rally to French Polynesia

If there is enough demand we will also run a rally to French Polynesia. Departing in May, sail to French Polynesia and spend three months exploring the stunning archipelagos, before sailing to Fiji and then back to NZ in October
