Leaky Boats, Tropical Showers and Underwater Paradise || COUCHSAILORS Sailing Journal #8

So *this* is what cruising in the South Pacific is all about…

After a life-changing experience with the fishermen we rescued, we headed off to explore more of the Pacific islands. A large atoll called Kauehi was our next stop. We made the most of the gorgeous weather and went scuba diving with sharks, snorkeling with tropical fish and using our Our kayaks through passes.

As with all good things, our sunny days had to come to an end. We experienced our first tropical rainstorm and really put our Beneteau Oceanis sailboat to the test.

We are a couple sailing around the world. We saved up, bought a Beneteau 423 sailboat and said goodbye to life behind a desk in corporate America. We’ve sailed the coast of California, explored the Sea of Cortez, crossed the Pacific Ocean to French Polynesia and we’re hoping to someday complete a circumnavigation. We hope to inspire you to jump off your couch and start your own adventure too!
