Island Cruising NZ are excited to launch their first ever South Island Rally, as well as plans for a Pacific Rally in 2022, and they have been overwhelmed by the response.
The rallies provide a unique opportunity for marine businesses to promote their products to a group of people who are highly engaged and planning long coastal or offshore voyages.
The rally will depart in December from Opua after Christmas and head South to Abel Tasman, Marlborough, Banks Peninsula, Stewart Island & Fiordland. There are options to do shorter legs too.
Rally participants will receive assistance with getting prepared for their voyage and getting their vessels up to the safety standard required for the adventures ahead. There will be opportunities for marine suppliers to promote their products and services to rally participants in the preparation webinars or by advertising in their popular newsletter, rally sponsorship or offering discounts.
During the voyage, rally participants will be supported by a shore crew team, and will be given weather advice, tips on passage planning, access to local VHF Radio Services as well as events and activities they can join along the way.
There are many ways that marine businesses can be involved in the rallies and Island Cruising owner Viki Moore is happy to discuss the options to find a solution to suit your budget. You can contact Island Cruising on firstname.lastname@example.org
