The South Pacific Islands is a place that I have been lucky enough to visit on a number of occasions, but not yet by yacht! I am really looking forward to spending time cruising around the more remote islands that are usually out of reach of the typical holidaymaker.
I will gather up bits of information here, so this post will grow as it goes along. But for now, I have just been advised about this wonderful site which has some great South Pacific cruising information. It is called Soggy Paws. There are some wonderful free downloads and I am going to have a great time trawling around here.
There is also a wonderful free book available online about cruising in Fiji by Michael Calder. Check out A Yachtsmans Fiji. But it is over 200 pages long, so you might not want to hit the print button straight away!
The South Pacific cruising season runs from May through to November ish – and after that many of the cruising boats either head up to the equator or down to Australia or New Zealand to escape the Cyclone season.
