Rally to French Polynesia 2023

Rally to French Polynesia 2023

Join us as we set sail from New Zealand to French Polynesia in 2023!

We will gather mid-May in Northland for the final preparations and to await a weather window for sailing east to French Polynesia.  

We'll give you all the advice you need for a smooth entry with our partners in French Polynesia there to assist, and then you are free to spend the next three months exploring this stunning and diverse country, specatular islands and enjoying the French & Tahitian cultures. 

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 return to New Zealand in September - before your 90 day entry visa expires via Fiji if you wish.

All crew will need to be fully vaccinated to enter French Polynesia & Fiji.
