The following pages chronicle the journey of the sailing vessel Pelagic and her crew. We are a family of 5; Michael, Amy, Zander, Porter and Anakena, taking our 42' Hallberg Rassy as far as we can comfortably go in three years. We left Oregon in September 2014, participated in the 2014 Baja Haha, continued on through the Panama Canal, into the Caribbean, up the coast of the US to Maritime Canada and from there crossed the Atlantic. After an arrival in Ireland we toured Scotland, then sailed down to France, Portugal and on to Morocco. In January of 2016 we slowed down considerably and enrolled the kids in a local Spanish school in Sanlucar de Guadiana for a few months. In the spring of 2016 we crossed the Atlantic towards the Caribbean. We are now in the Pacific, officially on our way home, albeit via a very circuitous path. We are currently in French Polynesia and looking at weather windows to Hawaii before finally making landfall back in the Pacific Northwest.

Currently our exact location is not available. Our spot coverage will pick us back up in Hawaii towards the end of May, 2017.

February 21st, lost count of the days......47th maybe

We now have more than enough wind and we are making good time towards our destination in the Marquesas. The seas have grown and the rollers toss the boat around, so the kids now spend most of their time down below reading and watching movies. It is hard to believe we will be out here another week and then some. We have 1000 miles to go. Spot is no longer transmitting, but the radio email has been fast. This morning we had weak transmission to the Tahiti radio net, but they could hear us and it was good to be heard.
