Goodbye Marquesas

When we set off yesterday we still hadn’t decided whether we’d stop on the way in Tahuata or Fatu Hiva again, but the wind made the decision for us: 20 to 25 knots from the east (instead of 12 from the northeast…) made it impossible to reach the southern islands of the Marquesas on our tack, so we’re heading straight to the Gambier. We can just see the mountainous silhouette of Fatu Hiva, the southernmost island of the Marquesas, disappearing on the horizon. Despite her weight problems Pitufa’s doing well closehauled and we’re making good progress in steady winds under sunny skies.
