Beru to Bora Bora
Most of us know very little about the islands of the Pacific and even less about how they came to be populated. The original migrations started from Indonesia and reached as far as Hawaii and beyond, so this race of 2219nm from Beru Island in Kiribati to Bora Bora in Tahiti, designed by SOLer Dingo represents a segment of a much larger migratory route. We will be sailing Seacart 30s - the modern equivalent of the original outriggers.
