How could you not be as excited as a kid in Fiji? In this episode we race Archer against our friends Pu (and blow a mainsail halyard in the process!). We paddle around in Fiji’s most beautiful anchorage. We zoom down the Taveuni River-Slides and Dive near the White Wall on Taveuni. Don’t miss all the fun – dive in and check it out!

ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on 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 very 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!
