The Superyacht Gathering to hold inaugural rendezvous in Fiji

27 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

South Pacific-based organisation The Superyacht Gathering has announced it will host its inaugural rendezvous in Fiji in August 2024. 

The programme will feature friendly regattas raced around the Fijian islands, interspersed with "barefoot beach parties" to allow owners from Oceania and further afield to meet. The event is open to sailing and motor yachts 22 metres and above, with $500 from each yacht entry being donated to the Fiji Yachting Association’s Kids Sailing Program.

The Fiji Yachting Association has also deeded the historic 1997 President's Cup as the winning prize and will be running the races in partnership with Australia’s Southport Yacht Club. The yacht's name and year will sit on the plinth along with "some of the great racing yachts of the South Pacific".

"The Superyacht Gathering is all about building a strong community of owners and industry professionals in the South Pacific," explained founder Linda Berry. "Together, we are working towards luring superyachts away from traditional cruising areas so that they can discover what this stunning region has to offer."

This follows the success of the organisation's gathering in Fiji last year, which saw 47 local and international guests from Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Ecuador, the UK and the US attend.
