You’ll spend 3 hours at the sand cay where you’ll have the chance to snorkel along the lively reef, go paddle boarding, jump off the side of the boat or go down the slide straight into the sea (yes there’s a slide on the boat!).

Swim over to the sandbar to sit in one of the deck chairs under the beach umbrellas, where the staff will be there to greet you with a nice Fiji Gold beer, or just chill on the trampolines on the boat under the sun and watch the world go by whilst the complimentary drinks keep flowing.

However you choose to spend the day, you’re bound to have a great time on Fiji’s newest day trip!

Where Do You Visit On The South Sea Sailing Trip?

The usual itinerary for South Sea Sailing is to take guests out to Malolo Sand Bar for 3 hours (just one stop on the itinerary). Malolo Sand Bar is incredibly picturesque and at low tide the sand bar is about 100 metres long! 

The water is crystal clear here, and what’s great is that for the majority of the time you’re at the sandbank there won’t be anyone else there – just the South Sea Sailing gang!

Malolo Sandbar Mamanuca Islands fiji

What Is There To Do At Malolo Sandbar?

Despite being a sandbar in the middle of the ocean, there is lots to do at Malolo Sandbar when you arrive with South Sea Sailing!

You can go for a swim, snorkel at the nearby reef, paddle board, relax under the sun and of course enjoy your delicious lunch onboard overlooking the sandbar.

What’s really great about the South Sea Sailing day trip is that the South Sea Sailing team bring sun umbrellas and beach chairs for you to sit and relax on at the sand bank!

Other day trips won’t do this, which is one reason why I really wanted to visit with South Sea Sailing.

Seeing the beach umbrellas and deck chairs parked up on a deserted sand bank looks like my idea of heaven – and it is those kinds of images that spring to mind when you think of Fiji!

You can swim over the the sand bank from the boat in a couple of minutes, or you can take the speedboat tender over to the sand bank if you don’t want to get wet!

The staff will bring an esky of cold drinks over to the sandbar too, so you can sit and relax with a Fiji Gold in hand whilst in the deck chair – perfect!

Malolo Sandbar Mamanuca Islands fiji

Where Is Malolo Sandbar?

The Malolo Sandbar is located just off Malolo Island and Malolo Lailai Island in Fiji’s Mamanuca group of islands. The Mamanuca Islands are the closest island group to Denarau and Nadi.

When you’re at the Malolo Sandbar you’ll be able to see the nearby resorts on the island of Malolo Lailai a couple of kilometres away – including  Lomani Island Resort ,  Plantation Island Resort and Musket Cove Island Resort.  

Unless you’re staying in one of the nearby resorts on Malolo Lailai or Malolo Island, the South Sea Sailing trip is the most convenient way to visit the Malolo Sandbar.

What Is The South Sea Sailing SABRE Catamaran Sailing Boat Like?

South Sea Sailing’s 78 foot sailing catamaran is brand new, super modern and surprisingly spacious!

Aboard Sabre there are plenty of seats and tables under the shade, as well as many comfortable beanbags on the giant trampolines if you prefer to relax under the sun. The seating area is very relaxed, with several day beds to relax on!

There is also a slide on the boat that drops down once the boat is anchored at the sand bar. Sliding down is honestly so fun, I must have done it about 5 times!

There are also steps to climb back up onto the boat easily once you’re ready to get back onto the boat.

Why Should You Do The South Sea Sailing Fiji Day Trip?

In addition to the brand new spanking boat and all the complimentary water activities, you get a mimosa on arrival, morning tea, a delicious healthy buffet lunch, unlimited soft drinks and an open bar for two hours all included in the price of your ticket!

A speed boat will take you to the nearby reef for some snorkelling if you wish. 

The snorkelling spot is really good as it is right next to the Sunflower Reef, with plenty varieties of fish and lots of big blue starfish! From the reef you can snorkel back to the sand bank!

South Sea Sailing also bring three paddle boards out for the day which is great. Both the paddle boarding equipment and the snorkelling equipment is very well maintained.

One or two other companies also do day trips to Malolo Sand Bar, however South Sea Sailing is definitely the company you want to go with as they bring sun umbrellas and deck chairs and set them out on the sand cay for you – perfect for you to get that Instagrammable Fiji photo you’ve been after!

South Sea Sailing also provides complimentary hotel transfers which takes the hassle out of getting a taxi and makes the day run smooth.

The South Sea Sailing trip is from 9.45am until 4.45pm in the evening – that’s 7 hours of free drinks and fun! It takes just over 1.5 hours to sail each way leisurely.

How To Get To South Sea Sailing

The South Sea Sailing catamaran, known as Sabre, departs from Denarau Port like all the other island day trips.

As mentioned above, South Sea Sailing provides complimentary return coach transfers to most hotels within the Denarau and Nadi area all the way down to Natadola and The Coral Coast!

Many other companies operating out of Port Denarau don’t provide complimentary transfers all the way down to The Coral Coast, so it’s really great South Sea Cruises (the company who un South Sea Sailing) do as it just makes your day easier!

When Is The Best Time To Go On The South Sea Sailing Trip?

The tides in Fiji vary quite a lot and really make a different to the landscape. During high tides, most sand cays in Fiji are submerged under the water (which is pretty cool)!

Only during mid to low tide do some of them become exposed.

Regardless of whether the tide is high or low, excursions of course go ahead each day.

If you specifically want to visit Malolo Sand Cay when it is possible to put the deck chairs and sun umbrellas up, you’ll need to visit at mid to low tide (when the tide is going down) or at low tide.

It’s not possible to put the deck chairs and sun umbrellas up during high tide or when the tide is coming up as they would get washed away!

south sea sail yachting

I use the Tide Forecast website – with location set as ‘Lautoka’ so I can work out in advance what times high and low tide are on any given day. Tide times change by roughly an hour each day so tide timings are therefore different every day. 

As South Sea Sailing stay at the Malolo Sandbar from roughly 12-3pm, you’ll want to plan your trip for when low tide is in the early afternoon.

Mid to low tide, or low tide, is the perfect time to visit the Malolo Sand Bar. However whatever the tide is doing and whether the Malolo sandbank is exposed or not – you’re bound to have a great time!

We were lucky to visit at both high and low tide. Low tide was great as the beach umbrellas were up, but visiting at high tide was also really fun as you got to stand and chill on the sandbar with the water coming up to your hips!

We used the paddle boards as a table to put our beers on, and saw so many sand-coloured starfish on the sandbank!

starfish fiji

I don’t want to place too much importance on the tides as it’s not always practical to work around them, plus it shouldn’t really take away from the whole experience.

I visited South Sea Sailing once during low tide and once during high tide and had a great time both times!

What Kind Of People Go On The South Sea Sailing Day Trip?

On both trips there were a real variety of people onboard, from groups of friends to young couples, older couples and some families visiting Fiji with older children.

The staff onboard South Sea Sailing are so lovely and relaxed, so there is a great laid-back vibe on the boat.

Everyone on the boat seemed up for having a great time, and the staff managed to get all the passengers up and dancing on the journey back to Denarau!

south sea sailing fiji

What Should I Bring On The South Sea Sailing Trip?

The essentials such as swimsuit, towel, suncream, a hat, and some cash or credit/debit card for any additional drinks.

It’s definitely wise to arrive with your swimwear on underneath your clothes, so you can get straight in the water once the boat reaches the sandbar!

There’s also only one female toilet and one male toilet, so it’s just easier to arrive in your swimsuit to avoid creating a big queue to get changed in the toilets!   

How Much Is South Sea Sailing Day Trip?

The South Sea Sailing day trip costs $239 FJD for adults and $179 FJD for children aged 10-15 years. The South Sea Sailing day trip isn’t suitable for Under 10’s.

What Amenities Are There At South Sea Sailing?

Toilets and an outdoor shower are onboard – perfect so you can wash the salt water off you before the ride back!

south sea sailing boat fiji

Is South Sea Sailing Fiji Day Trip Worth It?

We did the South Sea Sailing trip twice during our 3 months in Fiji, that’s how much we loved it! It was a really fun day and everyone onboard seemed to have a great time.

I would say South Sea Sailing is definitely one day trip in Fiji that is worth doing whilst you are in Fiji!

What can be learned from these 4 major accidents at sea?

Rachael Sprot

  • July 17, 2024

Accident reports make sobering reading, but if we want to sail downwind safely, then it pays to learn from gybes gone wrong, says Rachael Sprot

south sea sail yachting

There are few incidents on board more destructive than a crash gybe. The power unleashed when the wind catches the wrong side of the mainsail is hard to overstate, and the speed with which it occurs makes evasive action impossible in the moment.

There have been several tragic accidents involving crash gybes in the last 20 years which have been analysed by the MAIB and other authorities and the reports are sobering to read.

Studying accident reports is standard practice in aviation, but it’s less common for sailors to study them. They are, however, an important resource for understanding the risks of being on the water, and how accidents happen and absorbing the findings can make us all better skippers. The MAIB’s remit is to analyse the causes of each incident without apportioning blame.

We’ve probably all had an unexpected gybe at some point, though not with such devastating consequences. So rather than hope we’re immune to the same errors, perhaps it’s safer to assume we’re not and take a closer look at the reports to identify common themes, and how to stay safe downwind.

Liquid Vortex was racing when an accidental gybe caused serious injury to the helm

Case study 1 – Liquid Vortex, 2011

In 2011 Beneteau 40.7, Liquid Vortex, was competing in the Myth of Malham Race when a crash gybe seriously injured one crew member. The race starts in the Solent and heads west, rounding the Eddystone lighthouse before finishing back in the Solent.

The boat was running downwind on the return leg in a West Force 6 when her spinnaker tore. The damaged sail was lowered, and the heavyweight spinnaker was prepared, but became wrapped during the hoist. The headsail wasn’t set at the time, and there was no preventer rigged.

The first mate went forward to resolve the issue while the skipper remained in the cockpit but struggled to sort out the wrap. Communication between the cockpit and foredeck was difficult over the noise of the flogging sail. Frustrated with how long the process was taking, the skipper decided to go forwards himself.

He left an inexperienced crew member on the helm, instructing her to steer 040°, which was approximately a beam reach. He’d noticed an approaching fishing boat, but didn’t think it would be a problem. However, the helm and another crew member in the cockpit became increasingly concerned with their converging courses and asked the skipper for instructions. He shouted back to pass ahead of it, gestured to port, and told them not to gybe but the helm turned to starboard instead and gybed unexpectedly.

The traveller on the First 40.7 is just in front of the helm and during the gybe the mainsheet swung aft, striking the helm and knocking her to the cockpit floor, where she lay unresponsive. Another crew member took over the wheel and unintentionally gybed back again. A Mayday was issued and the casualty was evacuated by helicopter, during which the winchman fell overboard and had to be picked up by hi-line from the sea.

MAIB analysis

The report concludes that: ‘Communication between the skipper on the foredeck and the helmswoman in the cockpit was difficult’ and that ‘the helmswoman’s uncertainty about the action the skipper wanted her to take could have been avoided had the skipper remained in, or returned to, the cockpit until the fishing vessel had passed and was clear.’

The MAIB report also found that the skipper was competitive and ‘drove his boat and his crew hard’. Given the presence of novice crew, many of whom were suffering from lack of sleep and seasickness, as well as relatively demanding conditions, ‘a more cautious and encouraging approach was warranted’, the MAIB report said.

Case study 2 – CV21

During the first leg of the 2015 Clipper Round the World Race, CV21, one of a fleet of 12 identical Clipper 70s, suffered a fatal crash gybe 120 miles west of Portugal.

In the lead up to the incident, the boat was on a broad reach with NNE winds of 20 knots and a moderate sea state. They had the full mainsail, Yankee 1 and preventer rigged. The watches changed at 2200 and, according to the report, the oncoming watch leader commented that the boat seemed a ‘bit lively’. The off-going watch leader ‘disagreed and stated that there had been no problem running downwind during his watch’.

By 2330 the wind had increased and was gusting 30 knots. One of the most novice helms was at the wheel. The watch leader and skipper (who was below) agreed to put in a reef. At this point the watch leader left the helm station where he’d been supervising the steering, and crossed over the traveller, which is just forward of the helm, to brief the crew. He remained clipped on aft of the traveller, but was sitting forwards of it in an area which was known as a danger zone when the boat gybed without warning.

The report states that: ‘The helmsman was unable to regain control of the yacht’s heading before a second gybe returned the boom back to port’ and ‘a crew member saw that the boom preventer was flying free’. After the double gybe the watch leader was found lying motionless in the cockpit lying across the traveller and tragically never regained consciousness. The vessel diverted to Portugal and a postmortem revealed that he had died from a broken neck.

Dealing with orca attacks and how to navigate ‘Orca Alley’

There is a new buzzword amongst cruisers heading in and out of the Mediterranean through the Straits of Gibraltar… orcas!…

The MAIB analysis stated that prior to the incident, ‘the apparent wind speed of 15.7 knots was approaching the 16-knots limit recommended by the sailmaker for the Yankee 1 headsail. As the wind speed continued to increase, the helmsman found it increasingly difficult to maintain the yacht’s heading, occasionally veering up to 50° off course.’ They stated that ‘it would have been wise for… [the watch leader]… to replace the helmsman with a more experienced crew member’, but that his ‘decision to reef… was timely.’

Of the watch leader’s position close to the traveller they found that the race training and safety briefs had covered this hazard in detail and it was not known why the watch leader was there. They suggested that perhaps ‘he was preoccupied considering the reefing evolution and the pre-reefing brief he was about to give his team, and so forgot about the zone.’ The skipper did not come on deck for the reef briefing, and whilst this decision was ‘understandable… it resulted in the deck being left unsupervised by him at a time of heightened risk’.

On the failure of the preventer, subsequent tests discovered that it had parted at a partial splice of the Dyneema strop on the foredeck, ‘which might have been exacerbated by uneven loading of the splice, resulting in fewer fibres bearing the load’. They also found that ‘The manufacturer’s data sheet for the D2 Racing rope supplied to the Clipper 70s did not contain information on the loss of strength caused by splices, hitches or knots,’ and that ‘wider promulgation of the limitations of HMPE [known as Dyneema] rope would be beneficial’ for the industry.

Buccaneer of Upnor, an Elan 333 similar to the one pictured here, was on passage from Weymouth to Poole when a broach was followed by an uncontrolled gybe

Case study 3 – Buccaneer of Upnor

It isn’t always downwind sailing where crash gybes occur. According to an MAIB accident summary of an incident in August 2007, the Elan 333 Buccaneer of Upnor was en route from Weymouth to Poole when she crash-gybed off St Alban’s Ledge from a beam reach. The conditions were Northerly, Force 5-6, gusting Force 7.

According to the MAIB’s accident summary, the skipper had been supervising a novice helm for an hour on a close-reach course. Despite having two reefs and the No. 1 jib set, ‘the helmsman experienced difficulty in keeping the boat on the course, and the mate had to frequently “spill” wind from the overpowered sail by slackening the mainsheet’, the summary states.

When she needed to go below, the skipper instructed the helm to change course to a beam reach, which took them slightly further off St Alban’s Head and the mate remained on deck. Whilst she was below a gust struck and the boat broached. The novice helm put on full rudder to counter it. ‘After a short time,’ the report continues, ‘the gust subsided, but, with the helm still hard over the yacht quickly came round to starboard and continued into a rapid and uncontrolled gybe.’

The traveller on the Elan 333 is at the front of the cockpit, just aft of the companionway. During the gybe the mate, who had been sitting just behind the traveller, was caught in the slack mainsheet and thrown against the coach roof and fatally injured. He was evacuated by helicopter, but died the next day.

The MAIB advised the skipper of the need to ‘comprehensively assess the capabilities of each crew member to competently undertake specific tasks in the prevailing weather conditions, particularly when the skipper is absent from the deck.’

They also said that the skipper should ‘ensure that when transferring temporary charge of the deck and navigation that the passage plan is properly understood and adequate precautions are taken to supervise inexperienced crew and maintain overall control of the deck.’

Platino’s crew await rescue after the uncontrolled boom brought down the rig

Case study 4 – Platino

Based on Maritime New Zealand report Platino, a privately owned 66ft sloop built in 1997, had undergone a major refit in 2015. After three months of cruising in New Zealand, the two owners and three additional crew set off on a passage to Fiji, over 1,000 miles away. One of the owners, referred to as the skipper in the report, had 60-70,000 miles of experience and the other crew were all seasoned offshore sailors.

The passage started in light winds, but by day three they had 30-35 knots from the south with a confused sea. Fiji lies almost due north of Auckland, so they came onto a broad reach, set the preventer, reduced sail and the autohelm was performing well in the conditions. Suddenly, the boat crash-gybed with the boom following through, before crash gybing back again. The boat was out of control and preventer had failed.

The helm station was aft of the centre cockpit and the traveller lying between the two. No one was by the helm at the time of the incident, but it’s thought that one of the crew members was trying to reach it when the second gybe occurred. He seems to have been thrown to the side deck by the mainsheet and probably died instantly from his injuries.

Three remaining crew were rescued from Platino by the container ship Southern Lily. Photo: Maritime NZ

Worsening situation

The traveller failed, leaving the boom completely unrestrained, with the mainsheet and traveller car still attached. The report stated: ‘The motion of the boom was now only restricted by the boom hitting the shrouds on either side of the mast.’ The rest of the crew were then called on deck.

‘Soon after arriving on deck,’ the report continues, ‘the first crewmember to arrive called out to the skipper to duck, which she did before glimpsing something going overboard on the port side. The skipper then saw the crewmember in the water some distance from the yacht with his arm raised as the yacht continued on out of control.’ Tragically, the crew member who was overboard was never recovered.

One of the owners made it to the helm station but struggled to gain control of the yacht. He just managed to hold the boat head to wind for long enough to furl most of the mainsail. The mainsheet and traveller car, which were still attached to the 678kg boom and mainsail, were described as ‘acting like a wrecking ball’, smashing the helm console which included the hydraulic furling controls before the mainsail could be completely stowed. The cockpit table and bimini were also ripped off, and wheel bent, which made it more difficult to regain control of the yacht.

The crew were unable to secure the boom and were convinced that its motion would bring down the rig, which it did several hours later. The three survivors were rescued the following afternoon, more than 24 hours after the incident.

The yacht was later recovered and investigations revealed that the header tank for the hydraulic fluid on the rudder drive unit was almost empty, and a slow leak was the likely cause of the steerage problem which had initiated the gybes.

south sea sail yachting

The padeye sheared off and the line itself parted

The investigations also discovered that the preventer had failed in two places: the line parted, and the deck fitting that it was attached to had sheared off. On the failure of the mainsheet traveller, the report concluded that the design and installation of the traveller system exceeded the recommended specifications, but that ‘it would be unreasonable to expect that the traveller arrangement would definitely hold when subjected to one or more completely uncontrolled gybes’.

Platino accident report

Whilst the loads on a 60-footer are exponentially larger than those on a 40-footer, the Platino report gives valuable insight into the technicalities of preventer design. It explains that the angle between the preventer and the boom is the key to reducing the load on the preventer.

Hypothetically, if you could rig a preventer at 90° to the boom, this would mean that the load on the preventer would be equal to that of the force acting on the boom (a 1:1 ratio).

However, it’s not possible to rig a preventer at this angle, and the best that could have been achieved on Platino was a 27° angle if the preventer had been rigged to the bow. This would increase the load on the preventer by a factor of 2.4. Platino’s preventer had not been rigged to the bow, but to a block on the toe rail just aft of the shrouds. The angle between the preventer and the boom was only 6° which increased the load on the preventer by a factor of 10.

A computer simulation found that static loads on the preventer, when rigged to the bow in 35 knots of wind, would have been 1,100kg. Rigged as it was, this was increased to 4,600kg. With an additional 10 knots of wind, so 45 knots, these loads would increase to 1,700kg and 7,000kg respectively. Whilst the figures derived from a computer simulation may not represent all the real-world factors such as shock-loading, and the downward angle from boom to deck, they do explain why it’s important to take your preventer line as far forward as possible.

south sea sail yachting

Preventer arrangement aboard the yacht Platino

Platino’s preventer consisted of two parts: a pennant attached to a strong point on the boom, and a long extending line. It was the extending line which parted. Whilst the pennant was specifically for use as a preventer, the extending line was an old line which had been re-purposed. Even new, it would have been considerably weaker than then pennant. The pennant and the extending line were connected using bowlines. This is identified as the likely point of failure – a bowline can reduce the strength of a line by up to 70%.

Platino’s preventer also failed on the deck fitting. The bolts holding the padeye for the block onto the toe rail sheared off. The report found that this padeye had not been intended to be part of the preventer system and was not strong enough for this purpose.

The report also included figures from Harken, showing that a block deflecting a line by 30º will experience 52% of the force on the line, while at 60º this is 100% (the same load) and at 180º this is 200%, or double the load. With Platino’s preventer rigged to the shrouds, this would increase the load on the deck fitting and block to nearly 9 tonnes.

Lessons learned from accidents at sea

These reports make detailed investigations into the causes of each accident and are well worth reading. Each incident is different, and there are a combination of factors including interactions between crew members, the weather, and unforeseen gear failure which contribute to each one. As well as the individual conclusions drawn in the reports there are some lessons we can draw from looking at the incidents as a whole.

It’s a misconception that the boom is the main hazard of downwind sailing. Whilst being struck by the boom during a crash gybe on a yacht would probably be fatal, on most modern cruisers it’s well above head height.

It is the metres of slack in the mainsheet which is more likely to injure people. This is not always appreciated by novice crew, who may position themselves near the traveller, not realising the potential for the mainsheet to swing through this area. Crew need to keep clear of the danger zone, and crew can assist each other by speaking out when someone is in an unsafe position. Identifying a safe line, such as forward of the primary winches, makes it easier for crew to follow.

2 Helm experience

In the first three incidents the helmsperson was inexperienced. Downwind sailing, especially with any kind of wave or swell conditions, is challenging and novice sailors cannot be left unattended.

Even an experienced helm may struggle on a new boat, or in new environments, such as making the transition to ocean sailing.

If in doubt, the sail plan and course can be adjusted to better match crew competence.

3 Cockpit layout

It’s noticeable that none of these incidents occurred on a yacht with a coachroof-mounted mainsheet. The location of the traveller in or aft of the cockpit considerably increases the risk of an injury to crew in the event of a crash gybe. Many modern yachts used in charter fleets and sailing schools now have such centre mainsheets.

However, many performance cruisers, racing yachts and older boats often don’t, and extreme vigilance is required when sailing them. Sailors who have predominantly sailed yachts with centre-mainsheet yachts may not be so familiar with the risks of the traveller and mainsheet, and will need additional briefings.

4 Distraction

In the case of Liquid Vortex and CV21, there was activity going on outside the cockpit: attempting to unwrap the spinnaker in the case of Liquid Vortex, and the pre-reef briefing in the case of CV21.

Whilst helm distraction is not explicitly mentioned in either report, in my experience any other event occurring on deck can draw the helm’s attention away from the task in hand and needs to be recognised as a risk factor. Autopilots won’t get distracted, but they may also struggle in strong winds or large sea states.

5 Double gybe

In three of these incidents there was more than one gybe reported. In the immediate shock of a crash gybe the helm may not have regained control of the vessel, or they may instinctively return to the original course. Whatever the reason, the risk of a second crash gybe needs to be recognised by those on deck. If there’s a preventer on, and it holds, then quickly gybing back again is the best way to recover the situation.

During a crash gybe where the boom follows through it is much safer to stabilise the boat on the new gybe whilst checking for injuries and damage before attempting a controlled gybe back again.

6 Sail plan

Winds over Force 5 were present in all of the accidents. CV21 was making 11 knots SOG prior to the accident, so the apparent wind would have been much less than the true wind. Whilst this it isn’t mentioned in the reports, the difference between true and apparent wind can lull us into a false sense of security.

Reefing early and reducing the power of the mainsail reduces the loads on the preventer in the case of a crash gybe and gives it the best chance of working. Dropping the main entirely and running under headsail alone is an option which is often favoured by short-handed, novice or cruising crews.

Being over-powered is one of the most likely causes of either a broach or an accidental gybe. Photo: David Harding

7 Being over-powered

Being over-powered is also a risk factor for losing control of the boat. If the boat is continually broaching, a novice helm will often over-steer. As was the case in the incident aboard Buccaneer of Upnor, when a gust subsides and the vessel starts to respond to the rudder, the helm needs to straighten up quickly.

In gusty conditions an extra reef may slow the boat down in the lulls, but it should mean that things are more controlled in the gusts.

8 Early warning signs

Train your crew to recognise the early warning signs of a crash gybe: the helm feeling lighter; the vessel coming upright and perhaps heeling the wrong way; and the headsail collapsing. Let them know the safe way to turn when in doubt. Turning into the wind too much is noisy and annoying, but turning away from the wind too much is dangerous. Let them err on the side of caution and if they can’t safely sail the course you want, then change the helm, the sail plan, or the route.

9 Dropping the mainsail downwind

Whilst dropping the mainsail to eliminate the consequences of a crash gybe is a good idea, it’s difficult once a large following sea has developed, and these are the exact conditions under which you would want to drop it in. Rounding up enough to drop the mainsail could be dangerous in certain conditions. Coming up onto a beam reach with the headsail sheeted in hard might be enough to back-wind the mainsail and push it off the shrouds, but the sea state might not allow this.

Dropping the mainsail downwind is possible on smaller yachts, but you need to physically drag the luff down as the sail will press against the shrouds. On larger yachts it’s extremely difficult to do unless you have downhauls ready-rigged on the reefing points. So it might be that on longer offshore passages you’re committed to having the mainsail up.

Rules to remember

  • Brief the crew on the hazard of the mainsheet and traveller
  • Use experienced helms during any manoeuvre, including the briefing
  • Identify and enforce ‘Danger Zone’
  • Supervise novice helms
  • Sail safer angles (such as 120° instead of 150° apparent) when other activities are taking place
  • Reef early even though the apparent wind strength may be low
  • Drop the mainsail and proceed under headsail alone
  • Set a preventer with strong lines and well-thought-through layout

Making the decision to abandon ship

Published on July 15th, 2024 by Editor -->

On July 2nd, during the return delivery from the 2024 Newport Bermuda Race, the crew of Solution abandoned their 50-foot sloop, 200 miles south of Cape Cod, and were safely rescued by US Coast Guard Helicopter. The following was written by Carter Bacon, Owner and Captain of s/v Solution.

Solution was a 50-foot sloop, designed by K. Aage Nielsen and built by Paul Luke of East Boothbay, Maine, in 1963. She was expertly designed and solidly constructed for racing offshore in the North Atlantic, with 2 x 2 laminated 8 ply white oak frames, double planking of 7/8 mahogany over 3/8 cedar, bronze floor timbers and reinforcing members, and a plywood deck with fiberglass sheathing.

She has been maintained since 2000 to the highest standards by Rockport Marine, and has had undergone extensive replacement of structural members on numerous occasions whenever any questions as to her soundness were revealed by annual inspections. – Full report

These 3 lesser-known cruise lines offer amazing voyages on sail-powered ships

There is nothing quite as magical — or romantic — as a cruise on a sailing ship.

To stand on the deck of a vessel topped with dozens of billowing sails, propelled through the waves by the power of the wind alone, is to go back in time to an earlier age of travel, when crossing the world's oceans was as adventurous as it was challenging.

It's an experience that's all about the feeling of the wind in your hair, the lean of the vessel (known as the heel) as it's pushed by the wind and the sway from the waves (which is actually smoother than what you get on a motor ship).

For more cruise guides, news and tips, sign up for TPG's cruise newsletter .

In contrast to what you'll find on so many motor-powered ships, cruising on a masted ship is about the simple thrill of traveling across the sea and not about all the many attractions you'll find on board.

Only a handful of small cruise brands — so small that you might never have heard of them — offer trips on sailing ships. Here, we look at the three biggest players in this niche subset of the cruise industry.

Sea Cloud Cruises

If it's an authentic, old-style sailing experience you want, then Sea Cloud Cruises is the line for you. The Germany-based company operates three large sailing ships where the sails are unfurled by hand, just as they were on sailing ships centuries ago.

On the biggest of these three vessels, the 136-passenger Sea Cloud Spirit , 18 deckhands scurry high into the rigging on sea days to manually untie and prepare the sails, an amazing sight. Unveiled in 2021 , it's a full-rigged, three-masted sailing ship of the sort that hasn't been common on the world's oceans for more than a century.

Related: Why Sea Cloud Spirit is a sailing vessel you'll want to try

Sea Cloud Cruises' two other vessels — Sea Cloud 2 and Sea Cloud — are smaller but offer a similar show as the sails are set by hand the old-fashioned way. The former is a 23-year-old, three-masted barque propelled by 23 sails (five fewer than Sea Cloud Spirit); the latter is a 93-year-old, four-masted barque with 30 sails and a storied past.

Now configured to carry 64 paying passengers, Sea Cloud was originally the private yacht of Postum Cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and her husband, the famed financier E. F. Hutton. At the time, the vessel was the largest private yacht in the world. It later served the U.S. Navy as a weather ship during World War II, after which it became the presidential yacht for the Dominican Republic. It only began sailing as a cruise vessel in the 1980s.

If you have money to spare, you can still book Post's opulent private quarters on Sea Cloud, now its owner's suite. It'll set you back around $5,000 per day per couple. Her husband's slightly smaller quarters are also available to book at a similar rate.

Post, the wealthiest woman in the U.S. during her lifetime, notably also built Mar-a-Lago, the massive estate in Florida that is now the official residence of Donald Trump.

Sea Cloud Cruises is the most all-inclusive and upscale of the three brands listed in this story, with pricing to match. Expect to pay nearly $1,000 per person per day or more for many sailings.

Sea Cloud Cruises' three vessels offer a diverse array of sailings in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Canary Islands and Morocco, the Caribbean or along the west coast of Central America.

Windstar Cruises

Founded in the 1980s, Windstar Cruises got its start as a sailing ship line. While it now operates traditional motor-powered ships, too, voyages on sailing ships are still a big part of its business.

Three of the Seattle-based brand's six vessels — Wind Spirit, Wind Star and Wind Surf — are sailing vessels, and they all offer a similar yacht-like, small-ship experience.

Two of the three vessels (Wind Spirit and Wind Star) are particularly intimate, measuring 5,407 tons and carrying just 148 passengers with every berth full.

Related: The 2 types of Windstar ships, explained

The line's third sailing vessel, Wind Surf, is nearly three times the size at 14,745 tons. It's one of the biggest sailing ships in the world (only a sister vessel that sails for Club Med is bigger). Wind Surf carries 342 people, an enormous number for a sailing ship.

Unlike on the vessels operated by Sea Cloud, the sails on Windstar's sailing ships aren't unfurled by hand in the old-fashioned way but by the push of a button from the bridge. It's a fully automated system that is much more modern, if less dramatic.

Still, the experience of slicing through the waves by the power of the wind alone on Windstar ships is as glorious and romantic as it is on the Sea Cloud ships.

Windstar Cruises is less all-inclusive and pricey than Sea Cloud but still offers a relatively upscale experience. Its dining program is done in partnership with the food-focused James Beard Foundation, which also brings James Beard Award-winning chefs to the ships regularly for food-themed itineraries.

For an extra $89 per person per day, passengers can also make the experience more all-inclusive with included Wi-Fi, unlimited beer, wine and cocktails, and gratuities (three things that aren't included in regular fares).

The line's three vessels typically spend nearly all of their time sailing in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean or along the west coast of Central America.

Star Clippers

Like Sea Cloud and Windstar, Star Clippers operates three sailing vessels that are among the biggest and most elegant sailing vessels in the world.

The belle of the ball at the line is Royal Clipper, a stunning five-masted ship that is billed as the largest square-rigged ship in the world. Its enormous array of 42 sails has a sail area of 56,000 square feet — significantly more than the sails atop any of the Sea Cloud or Windstar vessels. (Only Sea Cloud Spirit comes relatively close with a sail area of 44,100 square feet spread across 28 sails.)

Built to resemble Preussen, a legendary tall ship of the 19th century, the 24-year-old Royal Clipper shares the spotlight at Star Clippers with two smaller sister vessels, Star Flyer and Star Clipper.

Carrying 166 passengers apiece, the smaller vessels were designed to resemble the speedy clipper ships of the 19th century, which were known for their narrow profile and large sail area. Each vessel has a sail area of 36,000 square feet spread across 16 sails, a large amount for the size.

When it comes to the setting of sails, Star Clippers vessels offer a level of old-style authenticity that is in between the ships of Sea Cloud and Windstar. Like on Sea Cloud vessels, the sails are pulled into position by a team of deckhands using hand power and winches to tighten the "sheets," or ropes.

Unlike on Sea Cloud vessels, the deck hands don't climb high into the rigging to untie and prepare the sails for winching. That part is done automatically at the push of a button from the bridge, as it is on Windstar vessels.

In one key difference, though, Star Clippers lets passengers harness up and climb into the crow's nest of its vessels — a thrilling experience. Just be prepared for your knees to go a bit wobbly as you get to the top; it's way up there.

Star Clippers sailings are the most affordable option among the three sailing brands, in part because the onboard experience is less all-inclusive and upscale.

The three Star Clippers vessels mostly operate sailings in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, the Caribbean and along the west coast of Central America.

Bottom line

It's still possible to get a taste of what traveling the world's oceans was like in the days before motor power. Three small cruise companies — Sea Cloud Cruises, Windstar Cruises and Star Clippers — offer voyages on large sailing ships that are as majestic as anything that has sailed the seas in centuries past.

Trending topics, chinese carrier strike group operating in philippine sea.

south sea sail yachting

China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy Shandong Carrier Strike Group is now operating in the Philippine Sea, marking the first time this year that the aircraft carrier has deployed outside of the South China Sea. The last deployment to the Philippine Sea was in October and November of last year. A joint PLAN-Russian Navy patrol is also currently operating in the Philippine Sea, while Russia also dispatched two corvettes on Monday for an Indo-Pacific deployment.

On Tuesday, carrier CNS Shandong (17), cruiser CNS Yan’an (106), destroyer CNS Guilin (164) and frigate CNS Yuncheng (571) were sighted sailing in an area 323 miles southeast of Miyako Island, according to a news release from Japan’s Joint Staff Office.

Shandong was also observed conducting flight operations with its fighter aircraft and helicopters, according to the release. Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer JS Akebono (DD-108) monitored Shandong and Japan Air Self-Defense Force fighter aircraft scrambled in response to the carrier’s fighter launches, according to the JSO relwase.

Shandong previously sailed within 230 miles of Luzon on June 26 before moving back to the waters near Hainan Island and subsequently conducting drills with other PLAN ships in the South China Sea.

The Shandong CSG deployed to the western Pacific three times last year. Its initial deployment was in April, when it operated for 19 days in the Philippine Sea, followed by a five-day deployment in the Philippine Sea in September. The third deployment to the Philippine Sea lasted 12 days in October and November.

The joint PLAN-Russian Navy patrol featuring Russian Navy corvette RFS Sovershenny (333) and PLAN destroyer CNS Yinchuan (175), frigate CNS Hengshui (572) and fleet oiler CNS Weishanhu ( 887) is also operating in the Philippine Sea. The joint naval patrol included training in the Philippine Sea on inspecting suspicious vessels, according to a Tuesday release from the Russian Navy Pacific Fleet. The joint patrol is an annual event between the two navies that first began in 2021, though this year’s patrol appears to be scaled down from previous years’ patrols, which included ten ships or more from both navies.

Earlier on Monday, the Russian Navy Pacific Fleet announced that corvettes RFS Gromkiy (335) and RFS Rezkiy (343) left their homeport of Vladivostok to conduct a number of exercises, including searching for and destroying mock enemy submarines, in the Asia-Pacific region. The ships will also work on joint procedures for air defense and anti-sabotage defense at sea. Upon departure, the two corvettes also carried out training to repel unmanned aerial vehicle attacks, according to the release.

The release did not state which countries the two corvettes would visit and conduct exercises with, but on June 12, the Indonesian Navy issued a release stating that it was carrying out the final planning conference for the Indonesian Navy-Russian Navy bilateral exercise Orruda 2024. Indonesia said it would be the first-ever bilateral naval exercise between the two navies. The Russian Navy previously only drilled with the Indonesian Navy in multilateral naval exercises, including the Indonesian Navy-led Komodo series.

south sea sail yachting

Japan tracked the movements of the two Russian corvettes as they sailed past Japan, according to a Monday news release from the JSO. At 11 p.m. local time on Sunday, Gromkiy and Rezkiy were sighted sailing south in an area 37 miles northeast of Tsushima and on Monday sailed through the Tsushima Strait toward the East China Sea. Fast attack craft JS Shirataka (PG-829) and JMSDF P-1 Maritime Patrol Aircraft of Fleet Air Wing 4, based at Naval Air Facility Atsugi on the main island of Honshu, shadowed the Russian ships.

The JSO also issued a second release on Monday stating that on Saturday at 4 p.m. local time, Russian Navy surveillance ship Kareliya (535) was sighted sailing west in an area 99 miles east of Miyako Island and subsequently sailed north in the waters between Miyako Island and Okinawa to enter the East China Sea. Multi-purpose support ship JS Amakusa (AMS-4303) surveilled the Russian ship, according to the release.

A third release on Monday reported that in the morning and afternoon of that day, a Chinese TB-001 reconnaissance and attack drone flew in from the East China Sea, passed between Okinawa and Miyako Island and subsequently circled around the Philippine Sea before returning back the same way to the East China Sea. JASDF fighter aircraft of the Southwest Air District scrambled to intercept, according to the release.

By the cabin sailing vacation in rangiroa.

Explore Tahiti’s Tuamotus archipelago on our Rangiroa Dream Cruise, which gives an expert six-day tour of this special atoll’s highlights. It’s one of the world’s largest atolls, where you will be surrounded by a huge turquoise lagoon. Taking you from Mahanahana to Tuamotu, you’ll experience beautiful motus with white-sand beaches, coconut plantations, coral reefs, unforgettable water sports, local crafts and beachcombing. Rangiroa’s clear waters are teeming with marine life and the area is a world-famous diving destination.

Relax in comfort in our standard double cabins, with private bathroom. Life on board is spacious with AC, but you’ll hardly want to be indoors when there’s so much wonder to see and enjoy outside.


Board at 3pm and settle in. You’ll be served with lunch and a panoramic view as the crew sail 15 nautical miles to Onetere. Relax in the afternoon with snorkeling, taking out the kayak, strolling on sandy beaches and riding on the motu. The crew will serve dinner and you’ll spend the night at anchor.

In the afternoon, you can snorkel the coral garden and swim among the colorful fish. In the late afternoon, sail 30 minutes to reach the impressive Pink Sands Beach, also known as Sables Rose, made from crushed pink shells. Walk on the sandbanks and discover the easternmost part of Rangiroa. Dinner will be served in the evening and overnight at anchor.

Reef Island

Sailboat Preview: Lagoon 43

  • By Cruising World Staff
  • June 6, 2024

Lagoon 43 catamaran

Details are starting to come out about the Lagoon 43, which is scheduled to make its debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Lagoon 43 catamaran deck

This boat has naval architecture by VPLP Design, exteriors by Patrick le Quement, and interiors by Nauta Design. It’s a team that has produced a winning combination of elements on other models in the past.

Lagoon 43 catamaran

The Lagoon 43 is the third-smallest model in Lagoon’s lineup, intended for cruising couples or young families. Owners can order the Lagoon 43 in a three- or four-stateroom version that’s outfitted with between six and 13 berths—and the staterooms are larger than on previous models, meaning there’s room for families to grow or to welcome friends on board.

In the three-stateroom version, the entire starboard hull is an owners’ suite. In the four-stateroom version, that hull is split into two en suite staterooms. Either way, the owners’ berth is forward, in a location that’s undisturbed by engine noise for a good night’s rest.

Lagoon 43 illustration

Another new element on this model is redesigned access via an extra aft entryway for each hull. The idea is to make it easier for people moving between the boat and the dock.

Lagoon 43 galley

The dining space can seat 12 people, making dinner parties on the hook a comfortable experience with a great view of the surroundings.

What are the key specs on the Lagoon 43? Length overall is 45 feet, 6 inches; beam is 25 feet, 2 inches; and draft is 4 feet, 5 inches.

One of the best experiences I've had in a long time. The island was beautiful, super friendly staff always ready to help. Snorkeling and kayak equipment were complimentary. The food was great, and the infinity pool was something I'd never experienced. Highly recommended!
Best day trip in Fiji! Lots of activities, easy access to bus transfers and wonderful staff – very open and accommodating. If you're in Fiji it is a must do trip!
It was an amazing cruise with a delicious lunch and wine. We got to snorkel with colourful fish. We then spent the afternoon island hopping seeing other places we could stay. The Fijian show was excellent. We had a wonderful day.
This was so much fun. Staff were awesome. Island is great with plenty to do. Lots of room to sit around relaxing. Trip was well priced.
Sabre was an absolute dream experience. The boat is amazing and a real asset for Fiji, the crew were accommodating and fun. There was plenty of seating on the ship. I would recommend it to all. Thank you South Sea Cruise, yet another great trip with your company.
This was an absolutely fantastic trip and a lifetime highlight for us!!! We were greeted on the island with music and singing! The guides were exceptional and we saw sharks and turtles. Highly recommend!
