Sailing in French Polynesia
A yacht charter in French Polynesia is an opportunity to sail in a cruising ground that allows both for line-of -sight navigation in the calm waters behind the reefs and also more exhilarating open-water passages.
The tidal range is negligible, but narrow passes between reefs demand careful navigation. Wind speeds generally range from 10 – 15 knots and temperatures range from a low of 77 F (25 C) to a high of 95 F (35 C) in summer.
To make sure that you get the most out of your French Polynesia Yacht Charter, we have equipped all of our yachts with the highest specification gear to help provide comfort, performance and fun onboard; so all that’s left for you to do is relax and enjoy your sailing vacation with family and friends.
