SHARE THE SAIL – EXPLORE FRENCH POLYNESIA
Don’t miss this one! June 28-July 5th, 2018
French Polynesia: Raiatea, Taha’a, Bora-Bora and Huahini
Every year for the past 20 years we have held our Share The Sail events all over the world, but the one that always fills first is the one to Bora-Bora! This years event will be the best ever, because it’s been over 5 years since we have done this one. Working with the folks at Proteus Charters we have reserved two Catana Carbon 55’s, 5 Catana 47’s and a Bali 4.5. These are all well cared for and beautiful catamarans which is the boat of choice for this area. Participants will share the sail, by sharing the navigation, galley duties and piloting. There will be a well-experienced skipper from our staff for any emergencies, but make no mistake, these are “Share The sail” events to give the experience needed for people who want to “get out there” and want to know more about the cruising lifestyle.
All cabins have their own heads and are set up for double occupancy. We will have some double cabins that have separate berths. For those who may be traveling solo but want to save a few bucks by sharing. just email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to match you with a boat-mate to share the cabin.
What’s it cost – book now and travel discounts.
We keep it simple and affordable. French Polynesia is one of the most costly charter areas in the world, but we have the boats (7 of them!) all reserved. They are two 55 foot Catana Carbon Catamarans, and four Catana 47 Catamarans, and one Bali 45 Catamaran (yes, they are all catamarans! This is the place for Cats!)

June 28-July 5th, 2018, double occupancy cabin
$2,800 pp double occupancy
$3,800 pp single occupancy

BOOK IT NOW!
The dates we show are for the boats ONLY!. What this means is, on June 28th participants need to be in Raiatea, at the Dream Yacht Charter base to board the boats. We will sail the islands for a week, returning the boats on July 5th.
All participants are responsible for their air and any land trips. We usually suggest staying at least 3 days either before, after or both, in order to take full advantage of this trip half-way around the world.
On each boat you can expect to have a private double cabin with bath. We do not “overload” boats. One couple to each cabin, plus each boat will have an experienced skipper from the Cruising Outpost “family.”
Partial provisioning means there will be most breakfasts, lunches & a few dinners, so you can enjoy meals ashore as well.
Here is a link to a site that informs you about flights, to help with your logistics
We suggest when you are planning your travel you add at least 3 days either before or after (best) to spend time in Tahiti and Moores before or after the sailing event. Here’s a lit of hotels recommended by Proteus Charters for extended stays:
