After-race festivities will include a traditional style beach party and feast prior to the official prize giving at the Mango Café, the home of the Vava’u Yacht Club.
Vava’u offers a new experience for blue water racing sailors including a unique style of local hospitality. The islands of the Vava’u group offer some spectacular anchorages for those who enjoy scuba diving, snorkelling or just swimming off the beach.
Race contestants will be eligible for a drawn prize for a trip for two to Vava’u including return air fares and six nights’ accommodation, staying at the Tongan Beach Resort.
The Kerikeri Cruising Club can assist with travel packages for supporting families and friends through Mondo Travel Kerikeri.
