Day 4 (Sat 15th) en-route to Hawaii

Day 4 is now underway on board our trusty little ship! We are 379 NM out of Papeete on the long lonely sea-road to Hawaii. All is well on board! Yesterday was one for our record book. Heavy weather sailing is tolerable downwind; close hauled upwind is an entirely different matter. The last 24 hours […]

Day 2 at sea bound for Hawaii

The few hectic days preparing to leave Papeete are now behind us. We interviewed 2 potential crew, but felt that neither was really what we were looking for, so we decided that as tiring as it may be, we would rather sail this leg alone. Karin did an amazing job as usual stocking every crook […]

Ready, willing and able!

My owners renamed me Mayaluga in 2016 (yet another interesting story!) when they committed to sail me to the South Pacific.  I was a lowly liveaboard for more years than I care to tell you.  In 2013 everything changed when Tony and Karin brought me to Victoria, BC and started outfitting me for their big […]

Stay in Tahiti and departure home!

Well, here we are, sitting in the Marina in Papeete, Tahiti, listing all the myriad things that need to be attended to on Mayaluga before we depart in days, weather window permitting. We had flirted with the idea of leaving Mayaluga in French Polynesia for 8 months and coming home, then spending another sailing season […]

Crew Wanted

Mayaluga will be departing Tahiti in early July, transiting the Tuamotus, with a destination of Hawaii. Do you consider yourself a competent sailor? We are looking for 1 or 2 individuals/couple to assist with watchkeeping and other duties. Mayaluga will be continuing on to Victoria, BC in early August. Option for this leg is negotiable. […]

Tahiti onward

we are enjoying the most incredible experiences in Tahiti and the Society Islands! Our friend Cliff from Ontario, and Richard from Victoria flew in to join us for two weeks in the islands.  We enjoyed spending a few days in Papeete, Tahiti, and then sailed the couple of hundred miles downwind to Huahine. Another amazing […]

Heaven is Fakarava

Last night was another rough passage. In the early hours of the morning we slowed the boat right down to 3 knots as we realized we were going to get to the pass before daylight, which we did. At first light we saw the low motos lying ahead of Mayaluga and palm fringed beaches, so […]

Update 5th night at sea

Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 1900hrs local time and all is well on board, but very uncomfortable. Short update only as we hang on at all times with an arm around something or other. Sleeping is almost impossible even braces into a tight spot because your body is literally being “flung” side to side. Today the […]
