Need charter, rent or hitch hike to Rapa Iti , South Australs, French Polynesia

Hi Folks,
Anyone up for a Southern.... South Pacific voyage...for a week or a week and a half...?

Hitch, rent, barter or charter. ...
I Just need a few days in Rapa Island! Thats the Rapa Iti island in the South Australs. Its a road less traveled to be sure...400 km South of the main group of Australs.

Steve

We were there a few years ago. I doubt you will have much luck getting there, unless you use the every 2 or 3 week commercial freighter.

There is usually a group of cruising boats that hang out in the Gambier. However, Rapa has a pretty miserable anchorage, so pretty much no-one hangs there. Also, as has already been mentionned, its cyclone season. A cyclone is rare there, but they do happen, and most sailors would not want to risk it.

So, I would have said out of cyclone season you might have been able to hire one of the cruising boats in Gambier to take you there, but doubt anyone would do it now.
