This is Taiohae Bay in Nuku Hiva (Islas Marquesas) where 'Escape' awaits her next adventure!
After 33 years of dreaming and 31 days at sea.. arriving to Nuku Hiva in the fabled Marquesas Islands!
DREAM BIG OR GO HOME!
After 31 days & 6 hours on 'Escape' we rowed to shore and looked like a bunch of drunken sailors! A truly challenging experience!
I am more confident than ever this was the right move!

First 24hours with 130 nautical miles traveled!
Without autopilot we ended up having to hand steer across the Pacific... my favorite position was comfortable; although my arms did get tired.
