Classic Pacific Tradewinds Sailing.

Join us for our last leg before we begin our research into coral in the Central Pacific. This should be a fast, fun, reach across the trade winds to the remote islands of Kiribati – there’s only one flight a week out of Kiritimati!So we have to get there before the flight leaves –

This is a great opportunity, whether you are a first-timer wanting to see what the fuss is about, or a seasoned pro wanting to get that Pacific notch on your belt and feel some adrenalin… this is the leg for you! An excellent opportunity to build your sea miles, experience an ocean crossing, practice your celestial navigation and enjoy the best of all sailing has to offer and as the start of an awesome exploration of the remote central Pacific nation of Kiribati.

This trip can count as a qualifying RYA Ocean Yachtmaster passage – contact us to discuss!
