Rally to Fiji & New Caledonia 2022

Rally to Fiji & New Caledonia 2022

Join us as we set sail from New Zealand to Fiji in 2022!

We will gather early-May in Northland for the final preparations and to await a weather window for sailing north. 

Take your time to explore some of the fantastic destinations Fiji has to offer. Spectacular sailing, incredible diving & fabulous Fijian hospitality. 

Our rally pack includes details of all the best places to visit, cultural considerations, tips on local rules and regulations, navigation, weather, and where to go for repairs and assistance.

The rally will continue to New Caledonia following Fiji Regatta week or at your leisure, so you can enjoy cruising and exploring at your own pace. If Vanuatu opens there will be the option to addon a visit there as well.

From New Caledonia we will return home to New Zealand or alternatively you can join our friends at Down Under Rally and sail to Australia with them. 

All crew will need to be fully vaccinated to enter Fiji & New Caledonia.
