Classic Pacific Tradewinds Sailing.
Join us for return from the central Pacific. This should be a fast, fun, reach across the trade winds back to Hawaii! En route you can hone your passage making skills or learn the basics in a warm, welcoming environment. If you’ve always wanted to go to Kiribati, schedule a visit then sail back to the US with us!
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 that sailing has to offer and culminates on the awesome island of Hawaii.
This trip can count as a qualifying RYA Ocean Yachtmaster passage – contact us to discuss!
