Martin Debanks, captain of New Zealand Yachts 34.1 metre trimaran Spirit, shares a seven day itinerary exploring the extraordinary Western Province of the Solomon Islands, taking in some of the rarer spots in the South Pacific.
Day 1: Gizo
After collection from the nearby Nusatupe airport to meet Spirit, head to Kennedy Island, a small, unspoiled spot now ideal for snorkelling and diving, where US President Kennedy and the crew of the PT109 were shipwrecked during World War II.
Lunch will be prepared by your chef, Joanna, before the short journey south to Narua Island for more water sports. Alternatively simply relax on deck with a cocktail.
