The general meeting of the association took place Thursday, March 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the annex wedding hall of the Town Hall of PAPEETE.
President Arnaud JORDAN opened the meeting with the presentation of the members of the board to the meeting. Adrien and Aurore LED PIA, who lives in Moorea, apologized. The President recalled the various actions taken to make the Association operational again.
- Update of the Association with the Directorate of Associations with registration in the Official Journal.
- Opening a bank account at OPT.
The Vice-President briefly presented the various meetings to publicize the Association since the last General Assembly on October 24, 2017. With the Commander of the Autonomous Port, the Deputy Mayor of Arue, the Deputy Of the Town Hall of Punaauia, to try to clarify the forbidden places at anchor, the accessible places and the places where mooring is tolerated. Many interpretations remain, as several members of the Assembly present. We will have to go back to that and collect all this information to make it appear on the AVP website, the second axis that the President intends to develop.
The President inquired the Assembly of the meeting with Onyx LE BIHAN, the person from Moorea City Council who is following the proposed amendment to the 2004 MSP. The situation is not favourable to boaters, it will be necessary to consider intervening in the public utility survey that will take place after the territorial elections around May. This official agreed to meet with the members of the Association to clarify the details of this project.
The office met several times to update the statutes and propose new texts. The Chair indicated that the question of a possible name change of the Association had arisen but that the majority of the board members were not in favour of it. The Vice-President argued for consideration of changing the name, and other stakeholders wanted everyone to think about the pros and cons of doing so.
The Treasurer presented the financial report for the 2017 financial year to the Assembly and provided an update on current memberships. The president has entrusted his third axis; without an increase in the number of members and the active participation of all the Association will have little credibility with the various officials.

Projects and initiatives for 2018:
The President presented the new Site of the Association with its various sections and joints that is truly intended to inform all boaters about texts, services, exchanges of ideas. It is essentially from the Site that everyone anywhere will be able to have the information they are looking for, such as the various mooring points, maritime news, events, meetings, stories...
Members noted that the life of the association also involves direct exchanges and that meetings should still be scheduled to exchange during the year, not just at the General Assembly. This proposal is adopted with the aim of preparing arguments on the problem of Moorea's new PGEM.
Sophie DERIOLS proposes to organize a kind of Festival, "a highlight around sailing and boats", with workshops and animations that can interest all audiences and not just people who already practice sailing.
It will be necessary to meet as many representatives and elected officials in order to make known the reality of the expectations of boaters, on moorings, on nuisances, on road services, on respect for the environment ... Present the goals of the Association, the development of this type of tourism... Highlight the lack of space in ports and marinas while explaining that since it is a form of tourism chosen by the territory it is necessary that boats should be able to have anywhere of areas where the mooring is free provided they respect principles.
This will require a local increase in the actions of the office with the participation of members who know the situations and local or territorial representatives.
The President thanked the Assembly and invited all members to work for the development of the Association.
