2018 Musket Cove Fiji Regatta
CRUISING AND RACING YACHTS ACROSS THE SOUTH PACIFIC ARE SETTING A COURSE TO THE
35th MUSKET COVE FIJI REGATTA
Cruising and racing sailors from around the Pacific and beyond, along with their families and friends, are already making plans to be part of the region’s ultimate sailing event, the famous Musket Cove Fiji Regatta.
This will be the 35th staging of the celebrated series, which is scheduled for September 7-12.
It will be sailed out of the famous Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina, an idyllic tropical destination located on Malolo Lailai Island, amid the beautiful Mamanuca Islands west of Nadi.
For the first timers, you may want to stay longer. Muskets Marina offers excellent facilities, berths, deep water moorings, laundromat, General store for provisions and access to the resorts restaurants and facilities.
“For more than three decades Musket Cove Fiji Regatta has been famous for its traditional, warm hospitality, excellent racing and a fun factor that remains on high from start to finish,” said the regatta’s co-ordinator, Jack Hargraves.
“This year will be no different: sail by day and party by night”.
Will Moffat added the early interest in the regatta indicated that last year’s record fleet of 105 yachts may be topped this year.
For the sailors, the signature event at Musket Cove Fiji Regatta is the 20-nautical mile Round Malolo Lailai Race, which starts and finishes off Musket Cove Resort, while onshore the party agenda will include the fancy dress Pirates’ Day, the Musket Island Rum Run and the ever exciting off-the-beach Hobie Cat round robin.
“Party Central” for all participants post-racing will be based around Musket Cove Yacht Club’s unique open-air Island Bar, where great island music will get things moving.
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.
Landlubbers can also join in the fun of Musket Cove Fiji Regatta. The resort offers special accommodation packages so visitors to the island can be part of the exciting atmosphere.
