Having set sail from New Caledonia and Vanuatu at various times over the past couple of weeks, 43 of the participating yachts have already arrived in Australia and the remaining 29 are expected to depart and arrive in the next 10 days. The majority have chosen Bundaberg as their port of entry. Welcome Week kicks off in the Bundaberg Port Marina on Wednesday the 7th of November.

Offshore Cruising Preparation Course

The goal of the Down Under Rally & Sail South Pacific in regard to this course is to provide all those who are interested in making offshore passages with the view to spending time cruising in different countries and or in remote locations with information, skills and the confidence to achieve your cruising goals. We believe that over the duration of your cruising term you will receive your investment in this course back many times over.
