Our passage from the Galapagos to the Marquesas was by far the longest passage we've made to date, and, at over 2,900 nautical miles (5,000 km) it's likely to be the longest passage we'll ever make. At least, we certainly hope so.
Since this passage was rather slow, we had lots of time on our hands and sent lots of newsletters, one almost every day. To make this manageable on the website, we've paired up the newsletters, putting 2 on each day. (OK, it's still too long, but it's the best we could do for right now.) Even if you received many of these newsletters via email, check them out now for the photos we've added!

At the bottom we've also included information about 2 of the islands we visited, Ua Pou and Nuku Hiva, as well as some cruising information we've sent out to other boats about where to go and what to do when you get there.
Note that you can also read a much shorter version our individual impressions of our Marquesas Passage in our Destinations section. But those impressions don't have the immediacy of these newsletters, which were sent as emails from the boat while we were actually on passage.
You will also note several voices in these newsletters. Jon wrote most of them, but everyone contributed at one time or another, even Arthur! The key to working out who wrote a given letter is that they usually put their own name first at the bottom.
