FRENCH POLYNESIA FLOTILLA
Tahiti, Raiates, Taha'a, Huahine and Bora Bora
February 17 - March 2, 2024
Join our French Polynesia Flotilla and visit paradise on earth. Those who fly into the islands and stay in hotels, only experience a part of the magic of the islands. It is only in sailing between the blue ocean and the turquoise lagoons in the shadow of the majestic volcanic peaks as the ancient Polynesians did in their outrigger canoes, that one realizes the full beauty of Tahiti.
Pauses in the reefs allow safe access in blue water sailing in the trade winds. Steady trade winds provide fast reaches of about 5 hours between islands. Good anchorages are abundant among the central islands as well as on the motus, lushly vegetated islets that have evolved on the encircling barrier reefs. These coral atolls have sandy beaches and offer a stunning view back towards those volcanic ranges.

HARVEST MOON REGATTA
October 17-20, 2024
The event once dubbed "A Howling Good Time" by Cruising World is back! Founded in 1987, the annual Harvest Moon Regatta event has grown from just under 20 boats to over 200-and we are proud of our South Coast Sailing Adventures teams who have placed in the top 3 winners for their class over the years! The 150-nautical mile race begins at the Flagship Hotel Pier in Galveston and follows the Texas coast to Port Aransas over the course of 2 days and 2 nights, when the night sky is dominated by the beautiful harvest moon.
In addition to a trip down the coast, sailors will enjoy a barbeque banquet in Port Aransas, a Race Finish Party, and the Rum Mary Party. Everyone is invited to participate as a crew member; however, we are also offering ASA 103/104 Combo (Basic Coastal Cruising & Bareboat Chartering), ASA 114 (Cruising Catamaran) and ASA 106 (Advanced Coastal Cruising).
*All prerequisites for ASA courses must be completed prior to departure.
