There are days in my life when I feel so satisfied with what I do.  Sometimes the road of a campaign like ours can be trying as company after company reject your sponsorship applications, or you see people continuing to trash the world we live in.   However our crusade to change the way people treat our oceans takes us to many wonderful places and we meet so many heart warming people who have a passion.

After the delights of Huahine, it was time to get back to Raiatea and Tahha once again. Our sail across to Raiatea was with Sunny our spinnaker up. It was a great sail, although we ended up in the most southern pass Teavamoa. This was because the kids get nauseous on a boat. Being this far south is not an issue, it just meant a beautiful cruise in flat water inside the reef, including a Read more

Having spent a few days at Moorea, we woke up early to get underway at the crack of dawn. We wanted to get to Tetiaroa as soon as possible. If we couldn’t stay overnight due to swells, then we wanted to spend as much time there as possible before sailing overnight off to Huahine.

So it was with great anticipation that we would go there and we looked forward to diving the waters of the lagoon that were home to Read more

After the horrific disappointment of Tahiti, we were looking forward to sailing away to the other islands in the Society chain. We had some friends join us and spent one day exploring Tahiti with them, including a trip to Papeete. The huge market there is well worth a visit with lots of local produce and crafts. Some of the timber carvings are beautiful, if only we had the space and money for them all. The Read more
