Australia

[meteor_slideshow slideshow="australia"] We left Noumea fully planning to sail to Coff's Harbor, but plans change (as they often do when you're dependent on the direction of the wind). We actually had decent wind for most of the trip, but  some bad weather was brewing...

New Caledonia

New Caledonia

[meteor_slideshow slideshow="sailing-to-new-caledonia"] After an awesome time with the volcano on Tanna it was time to lift anchor and move on. We had a really nice sail to New Caledonia, where we sailed straight to Noumea. We had planned to see more than just Noumea,...

Tanna and the Volcano

Tanna and the Volcano

Tanna in Vanuatu is all about the volcano, so needless to say when we were there, we were all about the volcano. http://vimeo.com/15064675 It was awesome. We spent an entire afternoon and an hour after dark witnessing the fury of the volcano. It is amazing. Anywhere...

An illegal stop in Fiji

An illegal stop in Fiji

When we sailed away from Tonga the plan was to sail straight to Tanna in Vanuatu. That did not happen, because the winds abandoned us 20 nm away from the Lau islands (part of Fiji) a full 700 nm away from Vanuatu. Being a bit unorthodox, I decided to put in a highly...

Hanging in Tonga

Hanging in Tonga

The trip from Niue to Tonga was a fast one. Our stay on Tonga was almost faster. It basically boiled down to hanging out in Vava'u for a couple of days, before we did a couple of cave dives and then sailed on for Vanuatu. The reason for this sudden increased pace is...

Adventures on Niue

Adventures on Niue

Whales, Speight's, road-tripping, cave-diving, snorkeling, curry and nightclubbing sums up our sensational 2 1/2 days stay on Niue. Talk about a whirlwind tour of the island. We got a premonition that the stop would be mayhem based on me having an awesome Angel of...

A relaxing stay on Palmerston

A relaxing stay on Palmerston

Welcome to paradise If you haven't been to Palmerston, don't plan on flying here. The nearest airport is 2 days away on a fast moving motor boat. The normal way to get here is on a supply ship that shows up every 3 - 6 months, the only other contact with the outside...

Partying on Bora Bora

Partying on Bora Bora

Bora Bora has been amazing. It is a picture perfect island and I understand why many people go here for their honeymoon. When we arrived we found a small bay on To'opua right next to the Hilton Bora Bora Nui hotel, so we had good neighbors. Chad and Bret's birthdays...

Seeing the sights on Moorea

Seeing the sights on Moorea

I was very happy to make the short sail to Moorea, because I had heard so many good reports about it. I can honestly say that it delivered in full. What was nice was that Don and Devin on Liquid Courage, as well as Lee on Jargo also made the trip across, so we had...

Tearing it up in Tahiti

Tearing it up in Tahiti

After what seemed like way too short a time in the Tuamotos, we sailed to Tahiti. We went there to celebrate Jacob's 30th birthday and to do a crew change. When I say Tahiti most people think of honeymoons. When I think of Tahiti, I think of one long party with great...

Amazing Tuamotos

Amazing Tuamotos

Though arriving in the Tuamotos in French Polynesia was like finding paradise on Earth, we were close to having a catastrophic arrival. On the day we were due to arrive, my brother woke me up and told me that we had lost all power, that there was no wind and that we...

Sailing the Marquesas

Sailing the Marquesas

When I say that I'm in the Marquesas, most people have no clue where it is. I actually think that very few people would be able to find these islands on a map unless they knew precisely where to look. When I say they are in the South Pacific, part of French Polynesia,...

Crossing the Pacific

Crossing the Pacific

When we crossed the Pacific, the longest sail we did was from Galapagos to the Marquesas in French Polynesia. It took us 20 days and 18 hours from when we lifted anchor in San Cristobal to when it was firmly set again 2984 nautical miles later in Angels...
