Sailing Around The World

Day 7 Galapagos to Marquesas Islands 5/6/13

Yup, pretty dang exciting today! We had the wind die off to about 8 knots so we change sails and put up a Spinnaker. We went from 4 knots to 8 knots and it felt pretty good to be sailing so fast. It made me think that we will be in the Marquises in no time flat. Thats right only 16 more days and I will get to have lots of beer or rum or something with alcohol, at this point I am not to picky. That and a long hot shower instead of my daily salt bath with a fresh water rinse. But thats the future and right now I am happy just being out in the world living the dream!

Current Location: 5deg 4.01min South, 104deg 24.21 min West

Dream Big! Then Live the Dream!

    Dude, if you can go 8 knots with 8 knots of wind, you coud probably go 20 knots in a 20 knot wind! (Yes math is my specialty). Hey If I could wheelie your Harly, I’m sure you can wheelie you sailboat! Godspeed bro
