The 2018 Cruising Season

We had a really excellent cruising season here in Vanuatu in 2017 and warmly welcomed visiting yachts from countries all over the world.

There are several cruising rallies that plan on visiting Vanuatu in 2018 so if you are planning your cruise to Vanuatu now you might wish to visit the Rally websites and consider joining other yachts for your blue water passage. Rallies add a significant safty  factor to passages plus you have a chance to meet like minded people who might become life-long friends and make your cruise just that much more fun.
