For it’s remoteness it has gotten the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yet the influence of our wasteful civilization on its beaches could not be more striking!
It was with heavy hearts that we left our friends on Rapa Nui behind. But as soon as we got into our passage routine again, our excitement to see new locations started to grow quickly! Our next destination were the Pitcairn Islands, which include Ducie Atoll, Henderson Island, Oeno Atoll and, of course, the famousContinue reading “Sailing to the Pitcairn Islands! – Ep. 74”
Zingaro’s final installment of the adventures on Easter Island. Editing this footage brought us back so many memories. We absolutely will return to this magical place.
We visit Ahu Tongariki: the largest Moai site of Easter Island. It has 15 moai lined up and includes the largest moai ever erected on the island.
We start this story in the magical land of Anakena. This place has proven to be (and still holds the title) the best anchorage we’ve ever been to.
If you ever get the chance to go to Easter Island, please do. It was a magical place. A bit difficult to have a boat, but the people, the food, and the ambiance was amazing.
The stories about this island were true: Little protection for sailboats and dangerous harbor entrances for dinghies make it a very difficult destination for cruisers.
Our passage from Ecuador to Easter Island: Three weeks on the Pacific Ocean, all by ourselves, we were fantasizing about a couple different things.
In this video we’re slowly but steadily making our way to the remote Easter Island, we’re dealing with the autopilot and the very moody weather underway.
Our Kickstarter-Campaign was sucessfull! We are so close to going out there again and doing what we love.
In this episode we find out exactly, what happens when you lose your autopilot 500nm out to sea on the way to the most remote inhabited island in the world.
In this episode we provision and start our 2500 nautical mile sail. We leave Ecuador bound for Easter Island (Rapa Nui)!
Our floating home has broken in two pieces. With the help of our Patrons and friends, we will find a new, stronger Zingaro 2.0 and take it on a new adventure.
I made this Episode more documentary style and longer than usual. It’s about how to stay sane while sailing around the world and why having fun should be on your to do list!
Real time update | We just returned from a magical weekend in the normally prohibited island of Mai’ao (where tourists are NOT welcome). You have to be invited, and we took a local boy that hadn’t visited his home for 3 years! Needless to say we got a warm welcome. We felt like members ofContinue reading “Ia’orana from Mo’rea!”
This video was taken back in Ecuador when we were beginning to explore the coast and the islands of that beautiful country.
He had it coming. He was such a bugger… Very difficult to live with, constantly complaining, a real nightmare. So, we got rid of the problem. Who Needs Cold Beer?
We had tons of work to do on the boat and Ecuador was really a great place to do that. Not too hot to work during the day and a low cost of living.
Zingaro’s sail from the Coco Island, entering the South Pacific and arriving to Ecuador – the big surprise.
We talk about plywood catamaran problems and what work you can expect. After sailing 700nm we finally find a boatyard to haul out Zingaro.
