Musket Cove Fiji Regatta - An event like no other

by Rob Mundle on 15 Jan 2014
Musket Cove, Fiji 31st Musket Cove Fiji Regatta 2014
The legendary Musket Cove Fiji Regatta, a regatta like no other, will be staged from September 5-10, 2014. Hosted by the Musket Cove Yacht Club, it will be based amid the unhurried and carefree world of Musket Cove Resort and Marina on historic Malolo Lailai Island, Fiji – the centre of the sunniest region in the South Pacific.

The island is the perfect venue for this famous annual regatta, and the sailing is superb – almost always under clear blue skies and enhanced by a balmy tropical trade wind.

Musket Cove Fiji Regatta is open to all-comers – cruising and racing sailors who are sailing through this beautiful part of the world aboard monohulls or multihulls. The event is all about casual fun and camaraderie – people having good times on and off the water.


Most importantly, the program for the six days is simple: sail by day and party by night, the latter usually happening around the beachfront barbecue area at the yacht club – a recently refurbished open-air facility located on its own tiny island which forms part of the Marina. Anyone who sails to Musket Cove is eligible to become a club member.

There is a modest entry fee for the Musket Cove Fiji Regatta which covers the sailing and the social events, including our ‘Barefoot Gala Prize Giving Party’ on the final night.

Musket Cove offers competing yachts docking facilities at the island’s marina, or deep-water moorings in a sheltered bay immediately adjacent to the resort. These marina and mooring spaces are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

For more information, or to book a marina berth or mooring, email Musket Cove Yacht Club at Event website
