Our presentation team members will be flying in from Tahiti, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand specifically to share their knowledge and insights with you about cruising highlights, customs and immigration issues, repair and refit facilities, cyclone season options and more.

Tahiti-Moorea Sailing Rendezvous

July 24-26 — This annual three-day event has a dual purpose: to celebrate the safe arrival of the international cruising fleet, and to showcase highly-revered Polynesian cultural traditions in music, dance, sport and cuisine. The event includes several live music and dance performances, a rally/race from Papeete to Moorea, meet and mingle cocktail parties, and optional meals. Representatives from other South Pacific cruising destinations will be on hand to present mini-seminars and answer area-specific questions. (All are members of the nonprofit South Pacific Sailing Network.) 
     July 24, 2pm, Papeete, Tahiti — Checkin begins followed by chart briefing, live music and dance performance, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres 
     July 25, 10am, Papeete to Moorea — Rally/race (or ‘cruise-in-company) from Papeete Harbor to Cook’s Bay, Moorea. Shoreside activities, entertainment and dinner.
     July 26, all day, Moorea — Traditional sports day highlighted by cruiser participation in outrigger canoe races. Live music and dance. Optional Polynesian luncheon.
     *Moorea — As an added to the usual schedule, reps from several other SoPac cruising destinations will give (free) area-specific informational seminars.
