Sailing from Tahiti to Palau is known as one of the world's most amazing trade wind sails; yachtsmen the world over call it "The Coconut Run."
It begins when you cast off your stern line from the dock in Papeete and 80 days, 4500 nautical miles, and 12 credits later, this Sea|mester voyage ends as you tuck your bow behind an exotic reef into the protected waters of Palau, one of 500 islands that form an archipelago in the Micronesia region of the western Pacific Ocean.
In between, you get to hoist and lower the sails of a beautiful schooner, anchor in secluded lagoons, catch fish straight from the Pacific Ocean, anchor off the reefs of Raratonga, climb and hike with natives of the Tonga Archipelago and participate in a Kava ceremony with the chief of a Fijian village. Are we missing something here? Not likely - but YOU will be missing something to tell your grandkids someday if you don't sign up early enough to be among those fortunate enough to be part of this Sea-mester voyage.
