Life Far Away From Civilization

Fakarava is waaaaay out here and it’s a coral atoll.  There isn’t much in the form of supplies, and fertile soil for growing food is minimal.

Life Far Away From Civilization

Raw and remote. That pretty much sums up the Tuamotu archipelago. It’s easily one of our top 5 sailing destinations in the world. Pristine waters, abundant marine life, and just outside of the hurricane zone. Sailing here on our own boat was a dream (and one we hope to repeat). But until then, we are doing the next best thing. Sailing with friends!

But Fakarava is waaaaay out here, and it’s a coral atoll. Meaning there isn’t much in the form of supplies, and fertile soil for growing food is minimal. Locals have to be self-sufficient because survival this far from the mainland requires great planning and patience. Today you’ll get a little taste of what it’s like to go on a supply mission to one of the most remote islands in the world.

Plus, we test some new cameras and have the most gorgeous champagne sail to our favorite dive spot of all time. Sharks, sharks, and more sharks. Hundreds of them! So put on your flippers and jump in!

And, they keep a blog of their travels aboard TTR if you want to learn more about them, their vessel, and where they have sailed:

📸DJI Osmo Action 3

What did you think of the Osmo Action 3? We’ve had all the previous versions but this one really packs a solid punch that should stand the test of time. It’s less expensive than a GoPro but just as pro…and has quick-release mounts (sooo handy). You can read all the specs on the site, but as sailors, divers and hikers, our favorite features are the 4K/120fps, 160-minute battery, and waterproof up to 16m (52.4 feet). There is a firmware update that should launch in late November adding 10-bit color, and a few other spankin’ new features that will make this little camera even more powerful.


The “Combo Kits” are the best bang for the buck. We have the “Osmo Action 3 Diving Combo” (includes the Camera + Extreme Battery, Waterproof Case, Floating Handle, Anti-Fog Inserts, and accessories) and the “Osmo Action 3 Adventure Combo” (includes the Camera + Extreme Battery, 2 Additional Extreme Batteries, Battery Case, 1.5m Extension Rod, and accessories).
