Mauritius is hosting a major sailing race from Port Louis to Durban and has good facilities. The Grande Baie yacht club is a good place to sart you enquiry. GBYC - Grand Baie yacht CLub - Mauritius - Introduction

Mauritius also has the pseudo-marina in the main harbour. The check-in can be done there too.

Be careful, depending on your dept. point - it can be rough going to mauritius at some times of the year. The Indian tradewinds are not like in the Atlantic or Pacific - man it can blow there !!!

Mauritius can also be affected by cyclones.

So check out the noonsite and the pilot charts too!!!
