We departed La Cruz Mexico at midday on the 14th March, raising the sails shortly after leaving and pointed Sarita towards the Marquesas islands, 2700 nautical miles away. The winds were in a perfect direction for us to sail out of the bay on a beam reach making over 8 knots with a bit of current to help us along. Now, two days after leaving, we have covered just over three hundred miles and the sight, sounds and smells of land well behind us. The conditions have been absolutely perfect with calm seas that will enable our stomachs to get used to the movement. Jude has been preparing delicious meals and we have been getting as much sleep as we need. All is well onboard.
