Finally Some More Videos

When my brother left from Rarotonga, he took all my video footage with him and posted it on you-tube, so for those of you who like my poorly edited and somewhat long videos, here are heaps of them. Unfortunately I cannot seem to embed them at the moment, so here are the links via youtube. Embedding will come later, and sorry if the links are messed up…

These videos are of our transit from the Galapagos to the Marquesas. The are quite long (the trip was 19 days) and probably boring for some people. I made them mostly for friends and family and anyone who is interested in knowing what it is like to cross the Pacific on your first try. There is fishing, rigging, stuff breaking, humor, food and of course, sailing.

In Tahuata, Marquesas, manta rays swim and feed on the plankton. Here is some footage that was taken with them. They are beautiful graceful feeding machines.

This sail to Fatu Hiva, Marquesas was to windward and easily the best sail on Slick so far I think. We passed our friends on the way and they took some video of us plowing over and through the waves. What a great day!

Sail to Fatu Hiva

In every waterfall there are eels. Lots of eels, this one is in Fatu Hiva.

I had never seen a sensitive fern before, but apparently Heather had one as a pet when she was young.

On Nuka Hiva, we visited a restored tiki site, but I don’t think the restoration was entirely authentic.

Are we too late?

This is the second tallest waterfall in the world. The water was murky and full of eels. And you never get to see the actual waterfall, but still the place was pretty amazing. It is located in Daniel’s Bay, Nuka Hiva, Marquesas
