I've not heard any news of organised rallies to Louisiades in 2017 yet. Might be too early.
If you would prefer a managed rally that visits luxury resort marinas
with organised feasts and dances from the locals, don't bother reading what follows ...
If you have skills to contribute to the people of the Louisiades, I suggest you contact Hans Clemmensen of yacht Seagoon.
Hans has been cruising to the Louisiades most years for the past 19. Since 2013 he's been installing solar panels
and lights in villages - soliciting donors in Aus, organising other yachts to join his Seagoon to transport the panels
and lights, and installing the lights.
Some years, Hans has taken as crew people with medical
, nursing, or engineering skills on Seagoon with him.
Hans is likely in either Cairns now or still in the Louisiades.
Read about Hans (and see contact details for him - note well the importance of sending a text message to his inmarsat address or email
to his yahoo) at: The Skipper
