They worked out a route that would start about a year later, in September 1999, in Tahiti. From there, they'd go to Tonga and Fiji. The couple would fly to New Caledonia when the boat moved to Auckland, stay for the America's Cup, then disembark and meet the boat in Sydney for a few weeks. They would fly to Brisbane and explore the Great Barrier Reef while the boat sailed to Bali, where they would meet again. They would fly to Thailand and meet the boat in Phuket, then fly again to meet the boat in the Maldives. They would fly to the Seychelles while the boat moved through the Red Sea, then meet at the beginning of the Suez Canal on their way to two months in the Med. They would arrive in June 2000 in Antibes, where the charter would end.
