Tahiti Pearl Regatta
The most important regatta of the Pacific Islands is organised each year to be an exceptionally event combining regattas, sailing and canoes, human encounters as well as charming discoveries.
The Tahiti Pearl Regatta is, without contest, THE annual meeting point for those truly passionate about sailing in Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.
An exceptional location
The 2013 edition allows the discovery of Raiatea and Taha’a islands, which share a lagoon, and Huahine island.
The Tahiti Pearl Regatta is - and always has been - open to all types of sail boats (monohulls, catamarans, trimarans, private or chartered, even trans-pacific boats) with no size limits.
Each year, between 40 and 50 boats from many different nationalities face off over three days, stopping the competition each night on one of the mythical French Polynesian islands.
The festivities begin on the 8th of May to the sound of Toere drums, Tahitian ukuleles and traditional song and dance.
