World ARC 2017-18 Cruising French Polynesia

After cruising the Marquesas and the rendezvous in Nuku Hiva the World ARC fleet is now sailing to Tuamotus, the first few boats arrived in Fakarava, one of the most stunning atolls of this archipelago, well known for the beautiful anchorages and the several breathtaking snorkeling and diving spots.

Since leaving the Marquesas the fleet have maintained contact with each other through the morning SSB net, sharing information about the cruising area and receiving support from Cameron and Cibele, sailing in the same area with the fleet.

The first boats are now heading to the South Pass and part of the fleet is expected to regroup in South Fakarava for a meeting and a dinner all together.

Few other boats are still in Marquesas, they took more time to explore the islands especially Fatu Hiva and Ua Pou with their waterfalls and breathtaking views.

"This is as about as peaceful as you can get. You just have to lean back and relax. Enjoy Mother Nature's beauty." Capt.Bob-Lexington
