The Tahiti Moorea Sailing RDV is an annual three-day event that aims to give a warm Polynesian welcome to cruising sailors while celebrating their successful ocean crossing.
In 2020, the Tahiti MS will moor in Opunohu’s bay in Moorea, at the foot of Mount Rotui , in the magical gardens of the Kellum family’s domain, full of history with its 100 years old house and of botanical treasures.
It gives the opportunity to our guests to discover, through a friendly rally, the charm of our islands, their warm-hearted inhabitants and the richness of the Polynesian culture.
One of the most important goals of the Rendezvous is to promote cultural exchange in various ways. So every year we encourage visiting boat owners to invite a few residents of Tahiti or Moorea to ride along on the crossing to Moorea (Saturday, July 25). It may surprise you that relatively few islanders have access to sailing, or fully understand the lifestyle of international cruisers — especially how most of them are committed to taking good care of “Moana” (the ocean). We hope you will consider participating in this cross-cultural exchange. If so, just indicate it in the registration form.
You can also register as a team member and take part in the regatta without having a boat.
