Auckland, then sail it up. Or Townsville/cairns and head east. I think your choice is going to be somewhat limited in fiji. Though yachtworld occasionally has boats for sail in Tahiti. I guess it depens how much sailing you want to do.

then again. I have no idea on your budget, but there is a medico group here looking for a boat and most likely have paid skippers that could teach you to sail. They are doing volunteer work in the pacific which 'may' compliment your work as an anthropologist. Have a read of this thread. http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ml#post1097469
