The Black Pearls

Their playground is the Pacific Ocean

Proudly Polynesian, fiercely Oceanian

Located in the middle of South Pacific Ocean, Tahiti is the largest island of French Polynesia. Since Tahitian Sailing Federation split from France’s in the 1980s, a handful of local sailors reached Sailing highest level including World Champion Billy Besson and Team Tahiti skipper Teva Plichart, 2007 European Match-Racing champion and Areva’s wincher at the Louis-Vuitton Challengers. In 2017, team « Trésors de Tahiti » finished 2nd of Tour de France à la Voile. Pitman Manutea Mahai, a young local fisherman, was part of this unorthodox crew nicknamed « the Tahitian Rastarockets » after the 1990s blockbuster by the French press. The SSL Team Tahiti will be a reset of this fantastic project that mixed Tahitian pro with local young amateur sailors. Their objective is to surprise European best teams as perfect underdogs. Tahitians are never as good as when they get together to show the rest of the World their sailing skills.
