A Passage to Fiji
Insights into our first sailing experience as crew
In my 10 years of travel, I have always been guided by things I had never seen or did before. Sailing was a complete unknown world to me. A world which seemed exciting but risky at the same time as I didn’t have any knowledge neither of navigation nor of the ocean.
JB and I were living in New Caledonia for a year. What a better place to live this kind of experience? But how can we make the sailing adventure come true? Was a pressing question in my head.
We were granted the incredible opportunity to be the crew members on a catamaran called ‘Songlines', travelling from New Caledonia to Fiji. A 5 day trip, on a sailboat, own by John and Leanne.
How is life onboard?
Will you be required to have sailing basics?
You might be asking yourself all these questions, just as we did. This is why, with the help of some awesome people, we have taken the time to put our passage down on paper, with my thoughts and JB’s photos, we are giving you tips to prepare and be prepared for your own sailing adventure!
