This is the dream: You’re sailing around the world and visit a stunningly beautiful island where you are welcomed by the village Chief. You become friends with the locals and are no longer a tourist, and you are allowed to see what life is really like in a different place. You create lasting friendships and you take away mementos you will cherish forever. And when it’s time to leave, you stay longer, because you will never find a better place than this. Sadly, this dream doesn’t happen as often as it used to. But it CAN HAPPEN in Fulaga…

ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on our “dream boat,” a performance catamaran named “Archer.” Ten years ago B.K. (“before kids”), we sailed a Lagoon 380 named “Honeymoon” halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the first “sailing channels.” We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with kids.

OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal. We have dealt with massive repairs in the South Pacific, the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a Category 5 Cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising in Covid Free Australia. Videos for all of this to come!
