Day 1: Goodbye Galapagos

We departed the Galapagos for the Marquesas yesterday afternoon under gray skies and a light mist of rain. The wind was light and variable for the first several hours but finally shaped up last night and we made up some ground. All is well and we’re working to settle into our offshore routine and sleep cycles – in other words, getting used to sleep in intervals of 2 hours and 4 hours at night with a watch in between, and making up the rest via naps throughout the day.
