Passage Gambier to Marquesas - Pictures

Picture time! We finally have internet again...

Here are some photo's of Irie's six day sail from the Gambier to the Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia, early this month. To read the daily stories of that trip, click on "older posts" at the bottom of this page and scroll down...


The first sign of a grey and rainy crossing - but it is a nice one!


Soaking up the first sunny day underway, albeit still with a lot of clothes on...


Sailing towards another squall.


The climate is getting sunnier and warmer.


Trying to stay ahead of a front behind us.


We had one nice sunset and enjoyed it!


Blue sky... yes!


The green tomatoes we were given by a local in Rikitea are turning red. Tasty and very special!


Grey sky... we were getting used to it.


Surprise front, coming out of nowhere, and in our path.


Good morning, Pacific Ocean!


And, finally, we caught AND retrieved a big and delicious tuna


Fatu Hiva, here we come (and stay)!
