LightSpeed setting sail for points west.

May 9, 2013
Cooks Bay, Moorea, French Polynesia

Later today we'll be setting sail for points west. Bye bye French Polynesia... we'll miss your cheap crunchy baguettes, but not your overpriced beers and outrageous $400/gal bottom paint.  After nearly 9 of the last 12 months sailing the Marquesas, Tuamotu and Society Islands we're ready for new adventures.  

What's next?  Maybe a stop in the Cooks?  Bevridge reef then Niue?  Or maybe Suwarrow then Vava'U, Tonga?  We'll set a comfortable course and sail where the wind takes us.  One way another we'll be sure to explore off the beaten path locations in Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomons islands this year.  In 2014 we're envisioning Papua and a slow tour of Indonesia.

LightSpeed anchored near the entrance of Cooks bay on the island of Moorea.
