The crew and owners of the 48 metre long superyacht Slojo watch the sunset after a day of fun and sun in the great southern lagoon of New Caledonia. Anchored in the lee of Ilot Kouare, the superyacht settles down for the night - the gourmet cook in the galley preparing a delicious fish dinner - the owners on the top deck hoping to see the "green flash" that appears just as the sun vanishes below the horizon. They were not disappointed - there was a green flash just after this image was taken.

The captain of the Slojo used our cruising guide to New Caledonia to plan his voyage through New Caledonia's lagoon and the owners invited us aboard for dinner to discuss taking aerial images using a kite. We took this sphere image of Superyacht Slojo from our dinghy as we approached the vessel at the appointed hour.

Superyachts are the new "Castles" - with very broad moats surrounding them - and the owners live like royalty in their private floating estates. The Superyacht Crew must undergo special training and certification before they can become a part of this magnificent lifestyle. All of them must have a safety training course mandated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the captain, first mate, engineer, first stewardess, second stewardess, deckhands and even the chef all need to take special courses and pass both practical and theory examinations for their ratings in order to get their "tickets".

We ate our three course gourmet meal in the spacious dining area on the afterdeck watching the stars come out and talking about photography. Both the owner and his wife were avid photographers and they encouraged the crew and guests to participate in photo contests. So I had a captive audience as I explained how to take aerial images with a kite and how to take sphere images. In the evening, after dinner, everyone uploaded their best images and videos into the ship's entertainment center and then gathered in the lounge to watch them on the giant plasma TV screen. This was a great finale to every play-day and stimulated a serious interest in photography aboard the superyacht.

It's not all just fun and games, however. Slojo and other superyachts also participate in the Yacht Aid Global programme, delivering supplies and medicines to schools, medical clinics, and cultural centres in very remote locations thoughout the world.

このパノラマはニューカレドニアで撮影されました

これはニューカレドニア領域の概要です

ニューカレドニアはオーストラリアとニュージーランドに最も近い南太平洋島です。ニューカレドニアはフランス領であり、フランス語が公用語として使われておりますが、文化はメラネシア、ヨーロッパ、ポリネシア、ベトナム、中国、インドネシア等多くの国の歴史をブレンドした国際的でユニークな文化を築いております。ニューカレドニアには、グランドテールと呼ばれる1つの大きな山の様な島と6つの小さい島があります。– 3つのロイヤルティー諸島、ベレップ諸島、イルデパン島

島には果てしなく広がる荒野があり、そして驚くほど住民が少ないアイランドです。また何百キロメートルのウオ―キングトレック、キャンプ場、42以上の公園および特別保留地と輝やく滝を保つクリスタルクリアの川があります。人口3分の1ほとんどがヌメアの首都に居住しています。ニッケル採鉱はニューカレドニア第一の産業として、国の高い生活水準への主な役割をしています。グランドテールは世界で2番目に大きい堡礁に囲まれており、この堡礁によって造られ保護されたラグーンは、世界で最も大きいと言われております。この24,000平方キロメートルの巨大なラーグンは、2008年に世界遺産として記録され、多種多様の魚と無脊椎動物の豊かな動物群をサポートしています。

観光客のご到着しだい、一目に留まる島の活気に満ちたクリスタルクリアでリッチな風景は、皆様に大いに愛され感動なされています。ヌメアでは観光客のご滞在を更にご満喫いただけるよう、こちらの全てのホテル、リゾート、レストランおよび島でのアクティビティーを広範囲でご用意させて致しております。
