Ep. 18 VIDEO: Mother Nature Takes the Helm

April 2016

Our passage from Rapa Nui (Easter Island) to the Gambiers Islands of French Polynesia was one of extremes. For nearly four days, we soared beneath our genoa alone and made over 6 knots average! On the flipside, we were pummeled by two back-to-back gales that made our last five days challenging and exhausting. We were forced to bypass famous Pitcairn (where the Bounty mutineers eventually settled), which was a big disappointment, but the challenges taught us important lessons in accepting things beyond our control. The passage also made us better sailors. We hope you enjoy this video!
