FOLLOWING the success of the 2013 Musket Cove Regatta Week, the dates for the 2014 yachting event have been announced.

The Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina Regatta will run from September 5 to 10, says a statement.

According to the statement: "Musket Cove is well-known for its sheltered yacht club, marina berths, moorings and cruising grounds, and regularly attracts cruising and racing yachtsmen and women from all over our beautiful, big blue planet."

"The program is simple. Sail by day and party by night, the latter usually happening around the beachfront barbecue area of the yacht club. The sailing is superb, almost always under the sun and enhanced by a balmy tropical trade wind."

The regatta begins with an official welcome at the yacht club.

"There is a modest entry fee of $50 per adult to cover race entry and all social events. Previous events have included a barefoot gala party, pirate day and island nights.

For further information, people can log on to fijimarinas.com for updates and official programs.

"Marina and mooring spaces are limited, so early bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment."

The regatta has been an annual event since icon of Fiji tourism, the late Dick Smith, headed the project for 30 years.

Last year, regatta participants hailed from international ports from as far as the UK, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, the US, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, the Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands as well as Fiji.

Sophie Daveta of the Musket Cove Yacht Club, earlier said about 25 yachts last year were returning participants with at least six local boats from the Royal Suva Yacht Club actively competing.
