The stunning islands of French Polynesia will be the location for Oyster Yachts next World Rally webinar available online on Thursday 25 February at 19.00 UTC/GMT.

Anyone wishing to join this live event can register at zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_D1NNtNGFT1ievVrASiUp2Q

These webinars are part of an extensive programme of support, training and expertise provided by Oyster Yachts for participants in the Oyster World Rally, which starts on Sunday 09 January 2022 from Antigua. This rally is already fully subscribed with 30 Oyster Yachts registered to take part, and many hopeful entrants on the waiting list.

"Our destination guides are extremely popular with those taking part in the rally, and this year we will be providing these through a series of online webinars, which will also be available to anybody dreaming of doing a circumnavigation, or who just wants to escape for a short time to the crystal clear turquoise seas of the South Pacific and learn more about these beautiful destinations," says Allie Smith, Head of Group Events at Oyster Yachts.

This live webinar about the French Polynesian Islands will focus on the passage sail from Galapagos to the Marquesas Islands, the highlights along the route, a presentation from Oyster's Tahiti representative, and a live Q&A session afterwards.

Previous destination guides on the Galapagos Islands and transiting the Panama Canal are available on the Oyster Yachts website in the dedicated Oyster World Rally section here.

The Oyster World Rally provides a fully supported experience for any Oyster owner who has always dreamed of taking part in a world circumnavigation. The Oyster World Rally team provides world class support, which includes boat preparation and service, logistics, customs procedures, provisioning, technical training and even providing professional crew through Oyster Yachts Crew finder service.

"We help and support our Oyster family through every step of their circumnavigation'" says Allie Smith, "From finding crew, to helping set up systems to run their businesses on-board, to destination guides, technical training, understanding weather and navigation, right through to being a welcoming face on arrival and organising some awesome parties. It's a 27,000-mile support service enabling our owners to have the experience of a lifetime without all the worry. By having a limited number of yachts - this year it's just 30 - we create a real family feel and people will make friends for life during the 16-month circumnavigation."

The 2022-23 Oyster World Rally will leave Antigua on 09 January 2022 and head south to the Panama Canal, before arriving at the Galapagos Islands, and then onto French Polynesia. After visiting the Whitsunday Islands in Australia, the fleet then head to Indonesia, Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Mauritius. Christmas will be spent in the fantastic city of Cape Town, South Africa before setting off to the remote island of St Helena, en-route back in the Caribbean in early 2023.

The following webinar in the series will be live on Thursday 08 April 2021 and will feature Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu.
