The Green Coconut Run is a cooperative sailing voyage, launched by 30 friends, to live the dream of sailing around the Pacific!

Our co-op members join for week or more, on the 42 foot trimaran Aldebaran. Four to six crew contribute to running the boat, as we surf, dive, and explore hard to reach coastlines from California to Tahiti.
