In 2015, BCA Members Barbara Erickson & 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. Join them as they sail north and visit remote villages, tribes and clans – where trading is still a way of life.
Barbara & Lionel were both active in sailboat racing before becoming offshore cruisers. Lionel has sailed to Florida, Mexico, Hawaii and the Mediterranean. They sailed the South Pacific together for 5 years on Sea Whisper, and have written several articles on their adventures for Currents.
They consider the Solomon Islands to be one of the best cruising areas in the world – a real Undiscovered Paradise!
