We are taking off today enroute to Marquesas! The passage is 7 days, 800 nautical miles, heading NNW.
Excited to head back into the reliable trade winds (Gambier’s weather has been finnicky, but the cool air has been quite lovely)
Follow our real time progress on our satellite tracker:
Many boats have been “stuck” in Gambier with north winds for weeks. We are lucky that we have a good weather window with SE winds to propel us north – although it looks like it won’t last long.
What about the insanely pretty atoll Tauna and the splendid island of Taravai that we visited the last few days? We will be sharing those remarkable memories as we are underway in our passage – enjoy!
