A large portion of yachts cruising Fiji each year begin their cruises in Savusavu, and end them in Nadi Waters (the large bay off Nadi which includes both Denarau and Vuda Point Marinas). Broadly speaking, there are three routes between these two places.
The addition of a 2 storey Yacht Club to Port Denarau Marina represents the first stage of significant development plans at this popular yachting destination. Named ‘The Rhum-Ba’, the Yacht Clubs incorporates a bar and casual tapas style dining on the ground level and a modern fine dining cuisine restaurant upstairs.

June 7, 2014, 1000 am. It’s the start of the ANZ Sailfiji ocean race from Auckland to Denarau, Fiji. We’re as ready as a boat and crew can be and the five of us on board, AP, Bex, Lefty, Seamus and AJ, are looking forward to racing out of a soggy NZ winter towards warmer climes. The fleet numbers 20 odd, which is the biggest for some time and augurs well for both this race and the future.
