Fidji fait les yeux doux aux plaisanciers

1 Comment

Cet article de Radio1.pf (retranscrit ci-dessous) a le mérite de poser très clairement la problématique du "fiu ambiant" des plaisanciers en Polynésie française. De part cette initiative, Fidji appelle de manière ostentatoire les voiliers en Polynésie française à venir séjourner chez lui.

Il semble évident que bon nombre de voiliers vont se laisser convaincre, à juste titre. Inutile de rappeler que ce seront des "touristes" en moins qui ne consommeront plus en Polynésie française. Mais à l'heure actuelle, au vu de la situation économique et sanitaire, la Polynésie française peut-elle se passer de cette manne financière ? Au vu des récents événements, de l'augmentation du vigilantisme, des prises de décisions contradictoires des autorités, ... il semble évident que la Polynésie française ne fait rien pour tenter de garder cette (la seule actuellement ?) ressource touristique financière.

C'est la dure réalité actuelle de la plaisance en Polynésie française.

 

Fidji fait les yeux doux aux plaisanciers

Alors qu’en Polynésie l’atmosphère est parfois devenue suffocante pour les plaisanciers, Fidji courtise cette niche touristique avec son dispositif « Blue Lane », en étendant de 2 à 5 ans l’admission temporaire des navires de plaisance. 

Une loi votée fin juin permet désormais aux plaisanciers étrangers de rester à Fidji « tax-free » durant 5 ans au lieu de 2 ans. Jusqu’ici, à l’expiration de l’admission temporaire de 18 mois et d’une extension de 6 mois, les plaisanciers étrangers devaient soit payer les taxes d’importation sur leur bateau, soit quitter le pays.

Selon la nouvelle règle, les yachts et voiliers autorisés à bénéficier de ce statut sont uniquement ceux entièrement consacrés à l’utilisation personnelle de leurs propriétaires. Les voiliers participant à des courses au large peuvent également être admis dans le pays par ce biais. La période d’exemption de taxe est de 4 ans et demi, avec là encore une extension de 6 mois.

Total : 5 ans pour explorer les 300 et quelques îles fidjiennes contre seulement 2 ans en Polynésie française, où la « route des 36 mois » mise en place en 2018 pour booster le tourisme nautique avait pris fin en juin 2020 quand l’admission temporaire avait été réduite à 24 mois.

Le début de la fin d’une niche touristique ? 

Pour rappel, l’épidémie de Covid-19 a bloqué en Polynésie française de nombreux voiliers (la DPAM parlait d’environ 600 bateaux) qui ont rencontré à certains endroits une franche hostilité, non seulement verbale mais aussi physique. Les marinas sont pleines, les mouillages manquent, et si à Tahiti les plans de mouillage ont été modifiés et des corps morts promis par le Port autonome ont été mouillés, ils sont encore inutilisables faute d’être équipés des bouées, filins et chaînes nécessaires à l’amarrage. De nombreux plaisanciers souhaitaient poursuivre leur route vers l’Ouest mais la plupart des ports du Pacifique entre le fenua et l’Australie sont fermés. Ils disposent à présent d’une porte de sortie, vers un territoire accueillant doté de services aux navigateurs et où le coût de la vie est bien moins élevé qu’en Polynésie. « La nouvelle réglementation de Fidji renforce notre position en tant que première destination nautique du Pacifique Sud et nous permet de conserver notre avantage compétitif sur ce marché », déclare la directrice de la marine de Port Denarau au Fiji Sun.

« On peut présumer que cela risque de « motiver » un certain nombre de plaisanciers internationaux en fin d’admission temporaire à quitter la Polynésie pour rejoindre les Fidji », estime l’Association des voiliers en Polynésie sur sa page Facebook.  Des modalités de test et de surveillance (des services payants) sont déjà en place pour permettre aux plaisanciers de se rendre à Fidji même en cette période d’épidémie. Mais la durée de navigation à la voile entre la Polynésie et Fidji étant d’environ 15 jours, les équipages qui s’y rendront peuvent être exemptés de quarantaine.

Mooring Buoy at Rapa Iti

No Comments

A mooring buoy anchorage was installed in Rapa Iti in January 2019 in Huarei Bay by the care of the commune and at the instigation of s/v Pitufa in order to protect the bottoms that appear not to be entirely made of coral soup as listed on the navigation guides but rather of alive coral shorntag.

This mooring buoy consists of a 2.5-ton concrete block with a 16mm chain and 20mm shacle.

A second mooring should soon be laid.

Gps position: S 27° 36.808 W 144° 20.034
Huarei Bay, Rapa Iti, Southern Archipelago

We invite all boaters to use moorings as a priority to preserve the biodiversity of the seabed that affects us all.

Bora Bora anchoring regulation

No Comments

In summary

All vessels over 10 m. and under 20 m. must anchor in the areas dedicated to the authorized anchorage. Beyond 20 m. Ships must use the "Yacht anchorage areas".

There is an obligation to declare all vessels on arrival and departure from Bora Bora.

Two areas are "free": the Faanui area and the Hitiaaa area. The anchorage is strictly limited to five vessels. The period of stay of vessels in this area may not exceed 36 hours.

The other five zones are granted to Bora Bora Mooring Services, which has installed 77 BBMS-referenced and numbered buoys to date (November 18, 2019) and plans to install 105. The night is 3000 CFP/day. According to other sources it would be $50 for 3 days and $100 for a week.

For all requests for services: waste management, drinking water, and emptying or for all buoy reservations, please contact : Francis HAZLEHURST, BBMS controller agent, Tel: 89 44 08 888 or by email: francis.bbms@gmail.com and VHF 9
For water, the points of sale for prepaid cards are: Matira Jet Tours activity office, next to the Air Tahiti agency, at Bloody Mary's restaurant or BBMS agency.

We asked Bora Bora Mooring Service, to produce his insurance. He replied (18/11/2019) that he was insured by Helvetia. The broker who manages all our insurances is the company ASSURCARE, represented by Mr Hervé ROIGNANT whose contact details are: email: hroignant@assurecare.of or BP 41156 - 98713 Papeete - Tel. : +689 40 836 200.

In our opinion, the rates are very high (3000 CFP /day) and the service low. Waste management but no access to land, fresh water and black water management not included, schedule of revisions of buoys not published.
Other cruisers testify:

We just spent a fabulous week in Bora Bora with our family. Thought you may want an update on the situation there. When you arrive make sure you pick up a buoy that has the BBMS mark on it, so you can be sure it is an insured one. Other moorings are not. A friendly young man named Francis will come by to collect their fees. $50 for 3 days or $100 for a week. This includes trash pick up MWF week days. The map he gave us shows where all of their moorings are located. Stay on a different one each night or the same one, does not matter. We were allowed to anchor (the yacht) for a few hours at dive/snorkel spots, but not overnight. We also tied up at the city quay to go shopping and put our guests on the airport ferry. All moorings we picked up were in superb condition including chafe gear on the loop. He says they are inspected every 6 months or sooner if someone wraps a prop. Francis was raised on a sailboat and speaks fluent English, French and Tahitian. He understands the needs of cruisers. Bora is quite cleaned up of the derelict boats we saw three years ago. Putting their best foot forward to keep it beautiful. I would not want to spend this kind of money to moor every where, but Bora is their top tourist destination.
