The Vanuatu Rowing Association will hold the 2018 “Masters in Paradise” rowing regatta over Sunday 21 and Monday 22 October 2018 on the stunning Erakor Lagoon at Port Vila, Vanuatu. 

The inaugural event held in 2014 was a huge success with over 62 rowers from Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu, as well as another 30 international spectators and officials. 

MIP 2015, 2016 and 2017 were also extremely successful with the venue moving to the other end of the lagoon.

The only alteration permitted will be to the position of the foot stretcher. Note the stroke of the fours and quads will have to be able to fit into size 10 shoes.

The FISA age categories will apply with crews categorised by the average age of the crew.
