Departing Galapagos

Our time in the Galapagos is coming to an end.  We set off at midday on the 3,000 nm passage to Hiva Oa island. Lovesail and crew have enjoyed an unforgettable experience here, more of which later – there will be plenty of time to catch up on blogging.  As I write this, the wind is 4 knots.  At that rate we’ll still be in the bay here in a week’s time but I’m confident that we will be able to find some breeze later to take us on our way.  Our plan is to head SW until we get to about 5 degrees South and then we should be in the trade winds and able to alter course to due West for a long time.  Weather outlook is fine and no problems anticipated.  In fact we are all eager to get on our way again and continue the adventure.
