Niouze-Letter November 2018

No Comments

As we are a dynamic, modest and brilliant association of boaters, here is a new newsletter on our news, but if you find us cumbersome and the frequency of our news does not seem relevant to you, feel free not to report it to us. You can unsubscribe or manage your subscription at the bottom of each of our letters.

So we held a meeting on Saturday, November 10th at the town hall of Punaauia (the cmplet report following the link), during which we asked the good will to help us in our task. We have "recruited" a new vice-president who volunteered by proxy, so welcome eric Pinel-Peschardière to the board. His candidacy will of course be voted on in AG.

We discussed at length the Moorea PGEM, and an email to the officials who remained unaccounted for
Answer. The date of the public inquiry is still unknown.

We have some testimonies of people who have been approached on their anchorage in Moorea by Moorea residents who seem to want to already apply the new PGEM in its harshest version and demanding even requiring boats to leave, more or less courteously. If you are aware of or have experienced similar events yourself, please let us know by email, we will build a file that we may submit to the officials.

Pierre Cosso, who was present at the meeting, offered to find the email addresses of signatories of an old petition in order to include them in our list of supporters. It also committed to contacting Customs for their services and obtained figures on boaters' entry-exits per year into the territory. We are working on publishing them.

We discussed the opportunity to make a short video on the realities of the life of boaters, also giving the voice to the inhabitants of Moorea on their feelings about the presence of sailboats in the lagoon. A small informal meeting on this subject and its possibility of implementation has been scheduled. Your ideas are welcome.

We also held Nautique Chips at Casa Bianca on Sunday 11/11 where the AVP stand was stormed as much for the sweet sweet sweets that were there (and that we sold in full), as for the membership campaign which was a great success thanks to Alice who showed remarkable efficiency, thank you Alice. We thank all exhibitors for their participation as well as Claude for the supply of Thermos bottles and hot water that went in.

We invite you all to renew your 2019 membership in the asso that needs you and to have your friends, mooring neighbors, sympathizers, locals, strangers, living, dead (I joke) finally in short all those you know and those you do not don't know yet. We find online the membership forms and here is how to join, paying online, by cheque, by transfer ...

Thank you for your attention.

Dear boaters, dear boaters,

 

The Association of Sailors in Polynesia has made it its mission to be the unavoidable and representative interlocutor of boaters, whether they are from here or passing through the decision-makers, political representatives who have not not often a good image of boating. That's why you joined us. We are working to increase contacts but also to ensure that the image of boating is better perceived and accepted by the inhabitants. Finally, we are all sensitive to the marine environment, an axis of communication that I am keen to focus on.

 

You will find in this long letter the links on our current actions as well as the spirit in which we would like to work together so that boating is a leisure and perhaps even a way of living in harmony with the inhabitants of the islands in a preserved environment.

 

We want managers to have a better understanding of the specific issues of boating. Perhaps we need to repeat that from Tahiti, we need half a day to get to Moorea, a whole day (yes, 24 hours) to go to the Leeward Islands, sometimes double to get back. We travel the pacific at the speed of a runner. And not Usan Bolt, take an average runner instead. During this time, we sleep little, may have difficulty feeding ourselves and ensure a night and day watch. In short, stopovers are essential to our safety, if not to our well-being. That we are then confined to the bottom of the bays for the wrong reasons and for the benefit of other tourist activities seems extremely unfair to us because we are all in love with our environment. We use the wind to move and not non-renewable energy, we are dependent on weather conditions as a result the mooring time limits seem difficult to apply.

That's why the revision of Moorea's Maritime Space Management Plan (MMIS) is one of our major projects. In short, we want to keep the possibility of getting wet wherever it is not prohibited.

The reasons are diverse, transportation safety is one of them and you can help draft the many other reasons we will add to the public utility survey that the Municipality of Moorea is expected to launch soon. For it is the very practice of boating that is in danger, nothing less. If all the islands follow suit on these kinds of decisions, we will spend more time booking buoys at the bottom of the bay than enjoying pleasant moorings. What's the point of having a sailboat in these conditions...  On the contrary, we are convinced that boating is a reservoir of jobs and that its environmental impact is very bearable. It is this message that we would like to deliver to Tavana Franck TAPUTUARAI and Hereiti ARAPARI of the Moorea Town Hall who will present the PGEM project on Saturday 16 June 2018 at 9:00, in the gardens of the Assembly of French Polynesia.

Of course, we also have to be blameless. And we're going to have to sweep in front of our door a little bit. We will have to make our own the slogan "Nothing overboard, all my waste in the port!" and act so that the ports are able to receive our garbage, sorted. How sad to see, and this is just one example among others, the perfectly sorted garbage cans of three boats of the Tahiti Pearl Regatta (glass, plastics/aluminium, household waste) end up in approximate containers, abandoned in the city center ... Our black water stakes must be collected or discharged offshore, the lagoon must be preserved and protected. Anchors must be done on sandy bottoms...  It is with this in mind and to spread this message that we will participate in World Oceans Day on June 9, the underwater clean-up action of the Yacht Club of Tahiti on June 24th...

We defend boaters, those who sail with a boat in good condition, manoeuvring, whether at port or at anchor. We identify garbage boats, shipwrecks, and sucker boats because we consider that a pleasure boat is not a house but a means of habitable transport and in this sense must be able to sail! Alerted by the practice of airbnb on boats, we are not opposed because it is not illegal but we condemn the use of boats anchored almost permanently to do so, especially in Moorea, because they are at odds with the current PGEM.

We are respectful of the law and the administrative, safety and environmental protection rules but also intend to enforce our rights. It is not normal, as we are seeing more and more, to be assaulted by local residents who overstep their rights and police themselves. But it is by being particularly blameless on the local orders, customs and practices that we will arrive, I am sure to sail peacefully, respecting the environment and the inhabitants of the islands.

The members of our association that you are want nothing more than to maintain the link between boaters, environment and people.

 

Arnaud JORDAN, President of the Association of Sailors in Polynesia
