The Society Islands: A Pacific Paradise, by Paul Brown

In March 2016, the crew of Little Wing willingly abandoned the cold, rainy days of boat maintenance and instead took a bus, train, three planes and a truck to arrive at the Society Islands in French Polynesia for a sailing charter.  Paul and family were able to enjoy two weeks of cruising around this Pacific paradise, exploring the islands of Raiatea, Tahaa, Bora Bora and Huahine, and the numerous small islands and motus found within the lagoons of these reef-enclosed islands.

Cruising in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland


Date: 
Wed, 07/12/2016 - 19:00

Cruising in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, by Gus Wilson

In the summer months, the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia and the south coast of Newfoundland make a wonderful cruising ground, with many anchorages, colourful villages, the diverse city of Halifax, and the remarkable warmth and peace of the huge Bras d'Or Lakes in Cape Breton.  Costs for food and marinas are modest and it is easy to find anchorages with no other boats.  Whales abound, and lobster pots do not.
