VI Mid-Island Presentation Feb 15 - SOLOMON ISLANDS

They were hoping to visit very isolated places where few yachts or Westerners had ever been and they succeed.

SOLOMON ISLANDS - THE UNDISCOVERED PARADISE

In 2015, BCA Members Barbara Erickson and Lionel Dobson discovered that tourists and offshore cruisers rarely make the effort to visit the Solomon Islands so, since they were in Vanuatu after four years of cruising west through the Pacific,  they decided to sail there in their yacht,Sea Whisper for the 2015-16 cyclone season. They were hoping to visit very isolated places where few yachts or Westerners had ever been and they succeed.

Join them as they sail north and visit remote villages, tribes and clans – where trading is still a way of life. They will explain how they found the Solomon Islanders, how they came to appreciate their very special culture and its traditions, while enjoying some fabulous opportunities to scuba dive and snorkel amid magnificent reefs, passes and drop-offs.  They learned about the history of the area and saw the rusting remnants of the largest sea battle in the world during WWII, the South Pacific Sea Battle!
