Location: Ua Pou, Marquesas

After a wonderful breakfast it was all hands on deck for some serious sail raising. From the bay, the waters looked choppy so we prepared for doing sailing drills in heavy wind. However, the wind gods did not shine down on us so the drills consisted of raising all the sails, then striking and flaking them as quickly and efficiently as possible in the blazing hot sun. We took a quick motor sail over to the isolated island of Ua Pou in search of a quiet place to anchor and enjoy being away from all civilization. We found the perfect bay, consisting of one Swiss resident who offered us as many limes as we could carry. There was a whole crew swim consisting of flips off the caprail and football games in the water. Later followed a relaxing evening, an awesome dinner, and a fun basic seamanship class.andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
