- We could smell the land from 20nm out.
- We had been out to sea for 18 days… 2500nm.
- We had been hand steering for the final 24 hours.
- It was worth every bit of trouble.
Three weeks on the Pacific Ocean, all by ourselves, we were fantasizing about a couple different things: Salad with yoghurt dressing and beer on the top of the list.
So close, yet so far: Stuck on our sailboat after our Pacific crossing
When we thought we could enjoy the benefits of being back in civilization as soon as we dropped our anchor, we thought wrong. The immigration procedure at first and finally our own equipment kept us from going ashore for another three days after our arrival.
We appreciated the beauty of the island, observing it from a distance and went diving off of our boat. The stoke of having it made to Rapa Nui, the island furthest away from civilization, was real.
We hope you enjoy our arrival to Rapa Nui. It was one of the best, coolest, and amazing passages we’ve ever taken, and hands down both of our favorite place we’ve ever anchored.
<3 Much love everyone! Hope this finds you all safe and healthy <3
