Inspiration left the Galapagos on March 17th, 2017 to sail over 3,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean to reach the Marquesas islands.
After 21 days of a nice downwind ride, Inspiration reached Atuona in the island of Hiva Oa, one of the main landing points for yachts arriving from Panama or the Galapagos.
Good and consistent trade winds helped the yacht sailing at decent speed all the way. Great fishing allowed for the crew to be well fed too.
Marquesians must be along the most welcoming people on earth and the crew enjoyed a great time in Hiva Oa, Tahuata, Fatu Hiva and Nuku Hiva.
While Hiva Oa is known for being the final resting place of painter Gauguin and singer Jacques Brel. Fatu Hiva features some of the most beautiful scenery in the archipelago.
