Victoria - San Fransisco - Marquesas islands

So we left Victoria and Canada on the 12th of may. It was cold, yes very cold acually. Afer a few days we decided to make a stop in San fransisco cause Rory felt sick and decided not to continue the trip.. Some 5 - 6 days from Victoria we ran into a nasty storm(or it ran into us acually) Up to 60 knots of wind and crazy big waves, the night was pitch-black and waves were constantly splashing over the deck and us. With the morning light the wind died down but the waves were still huge monsters.

A few days later we arrived in San fransisco.. I had still my stamp from the hitch across and it was valid(US dont give exit stamps) We stayed a few days in San fransisco and loaded up the boat with cheap wine and beer. Met with our friend Kuba and my friend Tim who happend to be there.. The last night in SF was interesting but that story is not for the internet.

25th of May we are leaving San fransisco for the big crossing to Polynesia, now just the three of us, Lukas, Karol and me. What to write about it,, its just routine,, took us 28 days finally.. The first week the winds were not very stable, it was acually first south of the equator we were getting good winds and could make some nice miles.. Caught a couple of fishes, Dorada, Tuna, Wahoo.. One sunny morning, the 21th of june to be exact we see something that looks like an island and later that afternoon we arrive to Taiohae, Nuku hiva!
