Re: Want to SAIL OFF and live on a deserted island?
That is a whole (tiny) country, Tuvalu. There are lots of interesting little islands in the world but they are far from deserted. If an island can support a population it does. My favourite escape island is Mangareva in southeastern French Polynesia. It is idyllic with a pace that is incredibly slow, but it does have a population of about 1500. This means that there is a supply ship and air flights (3 in every two weeks if I remember correctly).
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
