Tahiti Pearl Regatta, 27 April – 3 May 2015
The four day race takes competitors between the islands of Raiatea, Bora Bora, Huahine and Taha’a. The Society and the Tuamotu archipelagos meet all the criteria for an unforgettable sailing holiday, with the island of Raiatea often referred to as the “sailing island”. The friendly competition is open to all types of sailboats from all nationalities.
