Cross The Ditch 25: Pacific Waves

VATNZ and VATPAC are pleased to announce the summer edition of Cross the Ditch for 2023.

As the year winds down and the Northern winter closes in, where would you rather be than the islands of the South Pacific!

Join us as we celebrate the twenty-fifth Cross the Ditch by exploring the charms of the island nations and territories of the South Pacific. Over the course of the event, we'll cross the ocean from Tahiti in the east to Australia in the west.


On VATSIM this December, the Pacific's warm sands and blue skies are calling in Cross the Ditch 25: Pacific Waves.

For more information, check out the Cross the Ditch Website here.
