In the West Indies, we had settled into a good rhythm. Life was ticking along, we had our routine, and we were earning some money. But we started to get wanderlust again! We missed the nomadic life, and the Pacific finally seemed accessible to us. The Pacific. Our ultimate goal, the Eldorado of sailors. Its doors had closed on us three years earlier, thanks to the Covid pandemic, so at that time we decided to set sail again for Europe, before heading back to Martinique to replenish the ship’s coffers. If we were to follow in the footsteps of the great Polynesian navigators, we would need the most beautiful of boats, so we refitted our beloved Pahi 31 which had been designed by James Wharram. We transformed the entire deck to unleash her potential and added the comfort she was lacking. We removed the rig, installed a central cabin and crowned it with a magnificent crab claw rig on a bipod mast, all forward, supported by a small sprit sail on the mizzenmast. How stylish!
