The Yacht Club de Tahiti invites 5 keen Opti sailors to attend their Polynesian regatta in May each year. This is a fun regatta that is suitable for intermediate Optimist sailors and often has entrants from Tahiti and New Caledonia as well as our New Zealand sailors.
Successful applicants will be responsible for their own flights, accommodation, planning and regatta organisation. A parent or guardian will need to accompany your sailor. NZIODA’s role is merely to connect you with the main contact in Tahiti so that you can then go on and arrange your trip accordingly to suit your family’s needs.
