Paradise means different things to different people. When I hear the word paradise, Polynesia is what I think of. The islands have all of the ingredients: warm clear air and water, majestic land, exotic natives, and an ancient sailing culture. For me paradise is a temperate place. A place where climate and culture require minimal clothing. Warm also describes the people. As you treat them well you receive the same. Of course, paradise should have a history of welcoming explorers who have crossed oceans to discover it. It might also include white sand islets and live coral reefs to provide for and entertain us. And the island in the center should be jagged and dramatic. No rolling hills here, that’s too easy. The land in paradise is steep and challenging, a breeding ground for waterfalls and adventure.

We have been invited to sail along with a flotilla of Cruising Outpost boats.  Of course, we will be doing ours in style.  We have two extra days and are giving our sailors the option to wake up in a resort on amazing Huahine and look out to see your yacht awaiting.

We have a nice Nautitech 44, 4 cabins, 4 heads, with captain John M.
Our second boat, should we need it, is a smaller newer Lucia 40 – 4 cabin, 4 head with captain Woody.

Tonga to Tahiti travel tips … If you are also joining Sail Tonga, here are some tips for getting from Tonga to Tahiti.  Book soon …
The route is VAV-NAN, NAN-AUK, AUK, PPT, then a hopper to RFP (or HUA).  We are hoping a more direct option pops up but for now via google.com/flights, click Multi-city, put in VAV and NAN on Jun 27.  Click Add a flight, put in NAN and PPT on Jun 27.  This gets you to PPT for about $900.  Book an airport hotel in Aukland for Jun 27.  Book an airport hotel in Papeete (I like the one across the street).  Get on one of the morning flights to HUA or RFP, booked thru AirTahiti.com.
