After some study of the wind conditions this morning, we have decided to cut short our visit to Las Perlas in favor of seeking favorable winds. Breeze will be getting really slack in a few days, so we’re going to try to chase the weather and get in at least a few days of sailing toward our destination before the wind dies on us in the ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone aka “the doldrums”).
The trip to Galapagos is about 1000 miles and should take us about 6-8 days. In the meantime, check out all the new pics we’ve posted on our photo site!

Ya’ll look spectacular hanging out watching the sights of the sea. Shows there are attractions everywhere! Talk about “fresh” sushi or grilled seafood…with a fisherman along you’ll be dining in style. Have a safe crossing! Happy Easter to all.
Can you drag PDFs into your Kindle? or Word documents? I have an awesome tuna recipe!
I fear sushi will have earned a place on the list of ‘foods I never wanna see again’ by the time you get to your destination, so enjoy for now and hope you bought a Costco size bottle of soy sauce when you provisioned. Easter Tuna!
