Sailing Around The World

Day 16 Galapagos to Marquesas Islands 5/15/13

I received good news from our friend Don on the southern Cyclone aka Hurricane. The cyclone is located below the 40 degree latitude but it covers most of the lower southern Pacific from New Zealand to South America. The only bad thing is it will be spinning off waves 12 to 20 feet from the south west for the next 2 to 3 days, should make one hell of a washing machine effect. We currently have waves around 6 to 12 feet but most of them are from our stern which makes it a nice ride. Other then that, not to much to report and only 875 nautical miles to go.

Current position: 7deg 20.0min South, 125deg 59.83min west

Salt water is wetter then freshwater, FACT!

Thanks,

Jacques
