Au revoir French Polynesia!

It is hard to believe, but we have been in French Polynesia almost 6 months. It is an amazing place and we have met so many wonderful people. We are going to miss it and promise to return next year.
Rangiroa anchorage

Today, we are starting our sail to Hawaii - 2136 miles due north.

We hope to be anchored off the island of Hawaii in approximately 18 days.

Our good buddies on Evergreen are traveling with us, so we will have daily radio contact. Plus, we will be communicating with the Pacific Seafarers Ham net daily to report our position.
Enjoying the lagoon

We are fortunate to have two friends helping us with our weather routing - Thanks Jamie and Brad! It is definitely going to make our passage much easier.

I will be updating our blog daily so that you can track our progress and follow our adventure.

It is going to be strange being in Hawaii for 6 months, but we are looking forward to all of the luxuries - ESPN, microbrew beers, cheap and fast internet, California Zin's, and all of that other good stuff.

Plus, we will be able to visit our family and friends - we have missed you!
