Time Lines: "Sea Cloud" and "Wind Song"

Time Lines:

This is an unforgettable trip to Paradise - to the beautiful islands of the South Pacific. But as viewers will quickly see, this is no ordinary journey. We cross the "time lines" using two magnificent vessels: the Sea Cloud is a grand square-rigged tall ship, perhaps the tallest ship anywhere, with four masts and 29 sails, a vision of the past, reflecting what once was; the Wind Song is a modern sailing ship with state-of-the-art technology whose functions respond to, and are guided by, computers. On the first leg of our voyage, we meet the crews and watch how each ship uniquely navigates the open seas. Then we follow the path of Stevenson, Gauguin, Melville and countless others across the Pacific to the Marquesas Islands, where Gauguin spent his last years, to the Solomons where, between August, 1942, and February, 1943, American troops drove the Japanese from Guadalcanal and the rest of the Solomons.
