Thanks to the support of our partners Tahiti Tourism Board and Air Tahiti Nui, the Tahiti Pearl Regatta is also an adventure to be lived through the media.

Developing the sailing sector

It is not only in order to “promote” the TPR or the “destination”. It’s about testifying French Polynesia’s ability, location, dynamism and reliability to develop the nautical sector, being open to the world. It’s helping our local competitors to improve their team sport practice. It’s raising awareness to the nations around us, showing that beyond the Mediterranean Sea and The Caribbean, it’s possible to sail in the South Pacific and therefore, developing the sectors and markets related to sailing and sea.

Press accomodation

The TPR organises the logistics for the press so that journalists and photographers can work in the best possible conditions.We provide:

  • a catamaran for accommodation and for press points,
  • a speedboat to take pictures close to the racers
  • a Press Headquarters with a web connexion at each stopover.
A prestigious event

Sailing and sailing regattas are more and more popular in the global media. With the Tahiti Pear Regatta, French Polynesia enhances its image of an outstanding destination and positions itself in an essential media segment. Each year, magazines for aficionados and professional yachtsmen follow the regatta with a growing interest. These readers often belong to the well-off class, they enjoy great outdoors and high emotions, are open to new culture and appreciate the warm welcome of the Polynesian people.

An international visibility

Every year, journalists from the main international media and from specialized media come to write and broadcast the stories of the TPR. They stress the sporting side of the event, its hearty ambiance and the charm of Polynesia. The web and the social networks also echo the TPR’s success.

Depuis 2016, nous avons franchi une étape, avec un reportage audiovisuel de 26 minutes, réalisé chaque année par les équipes de Nefertiti Production — qui signent également les images du Vendée Globe —, produit et distribué par A.S.O, le groupe qui organise le Tour de France cycliste, le Dakar, le Marathon de Paris ou le Tour de France à la Voile par exemple.

A.S.O. et l’équipe de production Nefertiti sont sur terre, sur l’eau et dans les airs pour capturer les temps forts de la régate. Ils réalisent un documentaire de 26 minutes et diffusent des images bouts-à-bouts et un PAD chaque jour de la régate, utilisables par les médias. Cliquer ici pour faire une demande d’accréditation.
