Cruising and Racing Yachts from Across the South Pacific are Heading to the 34th Musket Cove Fiji Regatta
15 September, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 20 September, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Sailors from around the Pacific and beyond are already signaling their intention to be part of the legendary Musket Cove Fiji Regatta, which will be staged from September 15-20 this year.
Such is the interest in this spectacularly colourful event, that organizers’ are confident the fleet size will exceed last year’s record of 101.
This will be the 34th running of the regatta, which is sailed out of Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina, an idyllic destination located on Malolo Lailai Island and amid the beautiful Mamanuca Islands west of Nadi. The region is widely recognized as being the sunniest in the entire South Pacific.
Musket Cove Fiji Regatta is famous for its traditional, warm hospitality, excellent racing and a “Fun Factor” that remains on “high” from start to finish. The program is simple: sail by day and party by night.
Among the many highlights during the week are the fancy dress Pirates’ Day set on nearby Beachcomber Island, the Musket Olympics, off-the-beach HobieCat racing, plus post-race parties and beach barbecues at the Musket Cove Yacht Club’s Island Bar.
For the sailors, the signature event on the water is the 20 nautical mile Round Malolo Lailai Race which starts and finishes adjacent to Musket Cove Resort.
Each year, many “landlubbers” also visit the island to experience the exciting atmosphere that accompanies Musket Cove Fiji Regatta. Musket Cove Island Resort offers special accommodation packages for the week.
The majority of competing yachts lie at anchor just off the resort, however some berths at the island marina and set moorings, are available. It is suggested that owners wanting to secure a marina berth or mooring should book early.
