11 April – 16 April 2013 – The Pacific Ocean

Check-out took most of the day -
then last minute emails, water collection and fruit & veg. By 4pm, we were
saying farewell to Isabela Galapgos and heading literally into the sunset.

Adjusting to 4 hour sleep shifts and sharing watches. Rolling around in pitchy, lumpy ocean and rolling around doing everything! The winds have been south east and after racing along for the

When we left off, a carver in the Bay of Virgins on Fatu Hiva, asked if we would carry a package to Hapatoni on the island of Tahuata. He handed us a package wrapped in paper and plastic with a name written on the outside, Kalino. He called his friend on a cell phone and told him that we would arrive the following day and would be looking for him. William thanked us and handed us a stock of bananas.

... picking up and relocating here would. We’re super excited to be here and have already started the dreaded countdown clock of when we need to move on. Our tourist visa in French Polynesia is for 3-months and they are not known to grant extensions.

... it up in squalls of up to 20 knots of wind. With the big one we start getting seriously worried at 12 to 14 knots, so we only use that one when the sea is very light and not too rolly and the wind is really low, like now it's about 7 or 8 knots. We've just had brunch of sausage, egg and beans on the cockpit table with knives and forks, very pleasant sailing considering we are thousands of miles offshore. Sharkita's going well and other than ...

... 5 and 10 knots to start with, but then gradually increased to 10 to 15 and then 15 to 25 knots, which meant we made up for the slow start and we were able to make it in 20 days rather than the dreaded 30 days (more chances to go mad at sea!).
