2018 Doyle French Polynesia Rally – Registration now open!

by Island Cruising on 17 May 2016
Sailing in Tahiti SW
Sail the Austral's, Tuamotu’s and the Society Islands in company in the 2018 Doyle French Polynesia Rally.

With the promise of beautiful white sand beaches and swaying palm trees, a full bodied French red, a crisp Baguette, wonderful paté and a host of other French delicacies, this trip of a lifetime offers participants a rare opportunity and a number of choices.

Sailing East from New Zealand is often thought of as a challenge but with good weather routing the passage to the Austral Islands is becoming a popular route. At Tubuai we’ll be met by our French yacht agent and the officials for a full clearance to allow us to cruise the entire archipelago at our leisure. The usual bond will be held under arrangement by our agent and paradise awaits.

From the Austral Islands, at 23°30’S, the route is open to cruise the Tuamotu’s, Marquise’s and the Society Islands. The choice is then whether to sail back west or head north to Hawaii and potentially back to the States, Canada or Alaska.

Final detailing is yet to be confirmed but you can register your interest by clicking the link here and we’ll keep you up with developments as they happen.
