Yacht Rallies and Races to Vanuatu

yacht rallys vanuatu

Several yacht rallies visited Vanuatu in 2017. Joining other yachts for your blue water passage increases safety on blue water passages and offers a chance to meet like minded people who might become life-long friends and make your cruise just that much more fun.

Rally organisers also help with the often complicated process of yacht clearance in and out of the countries as well as planning special events and activities with people like us at Yachting World who really look forward to making your welcome as much fun as possible.
