We have arrived!

After a great night of sailing and the wind pushing us in the direction we wanted to go, we anchored in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristobal Island, Galapagos this morning. Today is being spent cleaning the boat, meeting with our agent and various officials, getting the bottom inspected (fingers crossed it’s clean) and a fumigation completed. We’ll be posting a wrap-up of our travels in Panama and our passage to the Galapagos soon, as well as lots of pics of the amazing wildlife here. For now we’re going to enjoy being at anchor (rather than on a 20 degree heel), catch up on some rest and have a celebratory drink. Thanks for following along!

  1. Great news to hear of your successful passage! Enjoy the penguins and turtles. Long haul coming up next, no?

    “Off the wind (hopefully) on this heading lie the Marquesas…(you’ve got 48) feet of waterline…nicely making way…”

    And btw, I read that comment in your interview about 111 days at sea with people you didn’t like. I’m sure you were talking about Jabber and not me or Fester….. 🙂

    Smooth sailing, guys.
