    As sailors we never know what the day holds for us. It could be catastrophy filled with broken bits or it could be calm seas with the winds at our backs. Our short sail from Bora Bora and the adventures that ensue are about as jammed packed near perfect day as any sailor could dream of.
    It all starts with a beautiful sail to the tiny island of Taha’a and ends with filling water buckets in a dark alley behind a gas station. And that’s not even the exciting bits!
    So hit that play button, put on your genie shoes and join us on the magic carpet ride, an impromptu rum factory tour, our best dinner in French Polynesia and some damn fine sailing.

    Another great idea. Do you have deck spot lights in your spreader. Put them on a remote for when you approach the boat at night.

      They catch it for laundry and deck washing but that's about it. For the reasons why, check out this post on how they get their water:

    LoL... Baywatch audition... you'd definitely get in Nikki... though we should see that run up again in a red one-piece first just to be fair... and Jason needs some tighter shorts to highlight the ..... "assets"... what I mean is he needs to look like he belongs in the water and is not just a visitor. LoL....

      Staying in their shady cockpit, wearing rash guard shirts when they're snorkeling, and buckets and buckets of reef-friendly sunscreen.

    Looks like you guys discovered why sailors enjoy rum so much. (wink) I've also always enjoyed surfing French Polynesia. Easy going people and inexpensive fresh food. So sad it's so far away from the U.S.

    Great video. We live in a world where mosquitos rule all through the late spring and summer months. What repellent fails to prevent, we wash/on a paper towel, with vinegar. In most cases, it really reduces the itch and burn of a bite. I know your space is limited, but a bottle of white vinegar will do wonders.

    Please don't use sunscreen and then swim around coral reefs. You two are dumping around 10-100g of oil there and other chemicals there.

    • Gone with the Wynns
      Gone with the Wynns  4 months ago

      Nikki is very careful to choose sunscreen without the ingredients that can harm the reef. You'll also notice that a lot of the time they were long-sleeved rashguard shirts to cut down on the amount of sunscreen they wear.

    So you guys have this giant sponsor. Who comes and cleans your boat? At least you could give them a plug. There is no way you are this chirpy and this boat is still clean after your "journeys" . Cmon be honest......yikes..... How's the 4 star hotels treating you?

    @Gone with the Wynns >>> FWLIW: Being WHERE they are on the Earth, I am a bit surprised they do not use some kind of solar furnace {or some application of solar energy} for distilling the rum, while keeping the leftover cane for a backup heat source.
    BTW, you could say the people on that island are... _Raising Cane._ 😊

    FWIW: I have not watched any videos from this channel for a while. I started watching this video, and I must have looked away or did something, and did not see one of the cats at the beginning. And I thought, *_"OH SHIT....'_*
    Then I re-watched the beginning of the video, and saw my mistake.
    *BIG WHEW!!!!*
